Skyline Design Launches Alexander Girard™ Collection

At NeoCon, Skyline Design launches ten graphic patterns by Alexander Girard, now available rendered on glass in a variety of techniques. Initially conceived as textile designs, glass expands the aesthetic expression of the original artwork, offering transparent, translucent and opaque effects.

Applying Alexander Girard’s pattern language to glass is a natural extension of his approach to interior design, which used layered transparent patterns to break up spaces, an approach that manifested itself as early as the 1920s, when he designed a series of etched glass pieces.

Walking a line between representation and abstraction, the selected patterns show strong symbolic presence and stand on their own. By bringing his work to contemporary interiors, Skyline Design acknowledges the relevance of Girard’s legacy today and honors a cherished American designer.

Girard on Glass

Skyline Design finds that the midcentury designer's iconic textile patterns translate well to the contemporary medium of architectural glass.

"As a trained architect, Alexander Girard was interested in all building materials and their interaction in a space," says Skyline Design president and co-founder, Charles Rizzo. "Layering and translucency form a continuous thread in his work. Glass seemed an ideal material to explore his interest in patterning in a contemporary context."

Inspired by Skyline's autumn Soba Noodle-making workshop with Sonoko Sakai of Common Grains, Metropolis Magazine featured a thoughtful synopsis of the event, capturing the spirit of the two companies' shared goals of crafting quality goods with a creative panache.

How a Design Firm Found Inspiration In Noodles showcases workshop highlights and photographs, including the backstory of how Skyline came to know and appreciate the work of food writer, author, and Japanese cooking instructor, Sonoko Sakai. Based in Los Angeles, Sakai is leading the Japanese food and culture project Common Grains, advocating for sustainable and healthy living through the tradition and pleasure of eating grains and vegetables.

Sakai's careful, but skilled and determined nature, along with her regard for the environment, reflects Skyline's own ethos of innovative, sustainable, quality craftsmanship. Read more here.
