Girard Environmental Enrichment Panels

Girard Environmental Enrichment Panels, 1972

by Alexander Girard

These decorative silkscreen designs, known as the Girard Environmental Enrichment Panels, were originally released in 1972 to personalise and add an element of “aesthetic functionalism” to the installation of Action Office environments. Unlike Girard’s printed textiles, the panels consist of single stand-alone images that range from abstract patterns to figurative pictograms. Playful and bold, the Girard Environmental Enrichment Panels serve as the exclamation mark at the end of Girard’s long tenure with Herman Miller.
