Vitra Metal Wall Relief Dove.
Design by Alexander Girard for the Swiss company Vitra.
Since their inception, Vitra has been making striking and functional furniture and accessories for the home and at work. In addition to working with contemporary designers, the label also re-releases style classics from the 20th century. Alexander Girard, a colleague of Charles and Ray Eames, was probably best known for his textile and graphic design, many with a whimsical quality. His work is exhibited worldwide, including at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
The Metal Wall Relief Dove was originally designed by Alexander Girard for The Compound Restaurant and the designer's home in Santa Fe. The Swiss company Vitra consulted the Girard family for permission to select this iconic design for a range of wall decorations. Perfect for various textile applications, the Metal Wall Relief Dove will be an eye-catcher on a wall in any room. The pigeon's purposeful, curved shape in combination with the elegant black metal makes this striking decoration graceful and peaceful.
The dove of peace first appeared in Girard's work in 1965 and has been used frequently throughout his career. Together with the Girard family, Vitra released a selection of motifs, including the Metal Wall Relief Dove.
This charming piece of wall art is made entirely of powder-coated sheet steel. It measures 18 cm high, is 40 cm wide and 4.2 cm deep. The item comes with the necessary parts for wall mounting.
