The 849 Alexander Girard Limited Edition was born of the desire of Caran d’Ache, Vitra and Studio Girard to decorate the 849 with the joyous cult patterns dreamt up by Alexander Girard. This multi-talented creator revolutionised the history of 20th century design by leaving his colourful, graphic mark on everyday objects. With a keen interest in textures, patterns and folk art, Alexander Girard collected the writing instruments which enabled him to express his creativity.

The two 849s call on patterns chosen from the collections of the Vitra Design Museum which houses the designer’s archives. The pink and white 849 boasts the “check stripes” pattern, developed by Alexander Girard to bring a touch of colour to decorative panels and textiles in everyday life. The black and white 849 presents the “double triangle" pattern created for use on textiles and wallpaper.
