Girard became Herman Miller’s director of design for its textile division in 1952 (he was pals with Charles Eames, who introduced him to George Nelson, who hired him), and he worked at the company until the 1970s. Eames and Girard shared a love of folk art and color, and were both experimenting with bent ply at the same time. This black and white textile is an "environmental enrichment panel" Girard designed for Herman Miller in 1971. It was one of the last of his 300+ designs for the company, and you can still find vintage versions of it today. You can also buy a smaller version on plywood.
