A single dot is an ordinary shape. But in a pattern it comes to life, interacting with the surrounding surface and other dots in regard to size, spacing and material. The Dot Pillows are adorned with a series of individual dots, each of which is embellished by an irregular hachured pattern that appears to have been embroidered by hand. This hand-crafted effect is accentuated by the seemingly random arrangement of the carefully colour-coordinated dots. They give the pillows a playful character that is balanced by the subdued background colours.
 
Dimensions 40x40cm
Colours six colour variations, with two different dot layouts.
Materials Filling duck half down – Fabrics Twill, embroidered

In his work, the architect and designer Alexander Girard paired motifs from folk art sources with abstract patterns. Many of his figures and patterns exude a cheery playfulness, and thanks to their vivid colours, even his simplest graphic images possess a high degree of differentiation. The Graphic Print Pillows are now bringing a number of these designs to life again: abstract graphics and expressive figurative motifs create striking accents.
