The hope of good design

March 09, 2015

“The hope of good design lies in those designers who believe in what they do and will only do what they believe…Contrary to hearsay, it is possible to make a living that way.”
--Alexander Girard

A tribute to one of the greats and his contributions to interiors, textiles, typography, furniture, and product design.
