Designed byAlexander Girard, 1967-1972
On his extensive travels, Girard avidly collected textiles and folk art – as well as matchboxes – from all over the world. Together with the contents of his studio, which encompassed hundreds of drawings, prototypes and samples, Girard bequeathed a major portion of these objects to the Vitra Design Museum in 1993. The Girard Matchboxes come in assorted motifs created by the designer for various purposes and selected by Vitra in cooperation with the Girard family. Cover: various printing and embossing techniques, depending on the motif. Contents: approx. 45 long matches (fireplace matches).
