In honor of Alexander Girard’s birthday today, we share this 1972 poster advertisement from Herman Miller. Girard designed these graphics for Herman Miller’s Environmental Enrichment program and they were meant to be used within the Action Office system. The images were silkscreened on textile panels, which then could be affixed to a variety of flat surfaces to liven up an otherwise dull office environment. The designs are one of the last projects Girard did for Herman Miller in their storied 22 year history.
More images of these panels can be found over on the Herman Miller blog.
