Tree of Life

– Alexander Girard, 1968

All his life, Alexander Girard was fascinated by folk art in all its forms and he was a tireless collector. He painted the Tree of Life on the occasion of the HemisFair, a major exhibition held in 1968. The original artwork was several metres high and decorated the wall of a building that Alexander Girard had built and which contained part of his collection. Vitra launches it today in a reduced format, printed on a sheet of steel, enamel-like relief printing.

Beginning in 1971, the architect and designer Alexander Girard developed a series of screen printed graphics on fabric to add a touch of human warmth and emotion to office environments: the Environmental Enrichment Panels. With a multitude of diverse and inspiring motifs, these large wall panels were also frequently used in private interiors.
