Key Ring with Girard Sun
The keychain Sun by Vitra represents a smiling sun and was chosen by Vitra in collaboration with the family Girard as a motif for a key chain made of metal. The Sun is a typical motive for Alexander Girard, which can be found on various objects by Vitra.
Motives from the Estate of Girard
The designer Alexander Girard is one of the dominant characters of American design of the post-war period. On his extensive travels, Girard was a fanatical collector of textiles and folk art, which he used as inspiration for his motives. After he died, a majority of the Girard estate with hundreds of drawings, prototypes and samples was donated to the Vitra Design Museum.
The keychain Sun is made from metal in brass look with black enamel paint.
