Wooden Dolls Cat and Dog by Vitra
Together with his friends Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures of postwar American design. A key source of inspiration for his wide-ranging oeuvre, which primarily focused on textile design, was his passion for the folk art of South America, Asia and Eastern Europe.
The decorative Wooden Dolls, designed and made by Girard in 1953 for his own home in Santa Fe, were likewise inspired by his extensive personal collection of folk art. Part decorative object, part toy, the Wooden Dolls were originally created for Girard’s own use. Based on originals found in the Girard Estate held by the Vitra Design Museum, the whimsical assortment of dolls, both joyful and grim, is now available as a charming enhancement to any interior.
The extended family of Wooden Dolls has gained two new members from the animal kingdom - Cat and Dog. Available in two sizes, Cat and Dog consist of three parts held together by magnets.
