Animating modern living

As a pick-me-up for this Monday morning, we’ve animated one of Alexander Girard’s most vibrant textiles, “Hexagon,” that he created for Herman Miller. Setting a chain of his green and blue hexagons in motion was the only thing that could possibly make this textile more dynamic than it already is.

As the card from Girard’s textile indexing system shows, “Hexagon” was used in the Miller House Maid’s Room. We previously shared Girard’s color story for the Maid’s Room, so be sure to check that out and see how Girard paired this unique fabric with others to complete his vision for this space.

Sample of “Hexagon” by Alexander Girard for Herman Miller, n.d., Box 91, Folder 60, Miller House and Garden Collection, IMA Archives, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, IN. (MHG_IVj_B091_F060_001)
