Material : Solid Maple ( France )

Today, the original wooden bird is held by the Vitra Design Museum as a part of the Girard Archive. In close cooperation with the Girard family, Vitra has brought this figure back to life: although its features are reduced to a minimum, the archaic-looking Girard Bird (1945) by Alexander Girard is clearly recognisable as an avian creature. The archaic-looking figure, made from solid maple wood sourced in France, can stand on its feet or tail.

Along with his colleagues Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures in American design during the post-war era. While textile design was the primary focus of his oeuvre, Girard was also admired for his graphic art as well as his work in furniture, exhibition and interior design.
