This is a Textile. It was designed by Alexander Hayden Girard and manufactured by Herman Miller Textiles. We acquired it in 2016. Its medium is linen and its technique is screen printed on plain weave. It is a part of the Textiles department.
Triangles were a favorite motifs of Girard’s, which he used for numerous patterns: in Small Triangles, outlined shapes create an overall diamond lattice, One-Way has overlapping triangles of different sizes all facing the same direction. In the design called simply Triangles, tangent equilateral triangles are colored in such a way as to create three- or four-color syncopations, with each color appearing seemingly at random across the surface.
