One small article just isn’t enough to cover the life and work of Alexander Girard. Suffice to say, his textile designs were hugely influential in the 50s and 60s, working with the likes of George Nelson and Charles & Ray Eames and for Herman Miller, not to mention some of the solo design projects he undertook during the mid-century era.
But here’s something far more modest – Acme’s Alexander Girard design card cases. These stainless steel cases come with a choice of Girard design (Multiform or Quatrefoil), brightening up what is usually a very mundane object. There’s even matching pens should you want to make a bigger impact at the next meeting.
The cases retail for £25 each, while the pens sell for around £39.95.
