On his extensive travels, American post-war designer Alexander Girard avidly collected textiles and folk art from all over the world. He bequeathed a major portion of these objects to the Vitra Design Museum in 1993, together with the contents of his studio, which encompassed hundreds of drawings, prototypes and samples. The Girard Ornaments come in assorted motifs that were selected by Vitra, in cooperation with the Girard family, from this vast store of figures and objects.
The decorative pendants are manufactured from metal with a polished brass effect.
