What better way to get the creative juices flowing in a kid than with an Alexander Girard block set? The blocks feature Girards wonderful iconic suns.
Alexander Girard (1907-1993) was a design virtuoso whose work ranged from the incredibly comprehensive and unforgettable Braniff Airways identity to high-profile restaurant designs such as New York’s La Fonda del Sol. A longtime textile designer for Herman Miller, Girard’s work created a powerful artistic statement that is still having a profound effect on interior and exterior architectural environments today.
