“Art is only art when it is synonymous with living,” said Alexander Girard, the director of design for Herman Miller’s textile division from 1952 to 1973. Toward the end of his tenure at the Michigan-based company, Girard was asked to add an element of “aesthetic functionalism” to Herman Miller’s very first open-plan office system, called Action Office. He responded with more than 40 images for the Environmental Enrichment Panel (1972) project. Ranging from abstract designs to figurative pictograms, these lively, colorful and fun panels bring personality and warmth – and a bit of Girard wit – into any environment. Each includes preattached mounting brackets for easy hanging (mounting screws not included). This is the authentic Environmental Enrichment Panel by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.

How are these panels made?

I am curious on how these reissued panels differ from their originals in terms of materials used? How are they made? It seems that these new panels are printed on canvas, is that correct? Is this the same process as would be done to have a photo printed on canvas? Basically, I am looking for some more information on how these care currently being manufactured and the materials behind them? Thank you for all of your help, Greg.

Best Answer: The original Girard Panels were silk screened onto two major textiles: Linen and Mexicotton. Mexicotton is best described as a soft, coarse weave similar to muslin.

The new panels are screen printed by hand on to 100% linen fabric. The image is then mounted on to a panel with a spacer frame and hardware. This make the Girard Panels easy to install on to a wall.
