Alexander Girard

Run, or walk, or roll over to SFMoMA for the Alexander Girard exhibit. He was the textile director at Herman Miller, working with George Nelson and the Eameses, and part of the team responsible for the redesign of Braniff. As such, a lynchpin of mid-century design. Yes, he's also the one responsible for the smiling sun throw pillows and Fonda de Sol matchbooks at your grandmother's.
