Frank Lloyd Wright (1867 – 1959) is widely considered to be America’s greatest architect. He amazed the world with his architectural ingenuity and designs. His vision encompassed the buildings and residences he designed, as well as their landscaping, art glass, furniture, lighting and floor covering, to create a unified whole. Frank Lloyd Wright’s overall concept for his buildings included the integration of the interior furnishings. In 1952, he developed a series of hexagonal metal chairs, tables and other furniture for the H.C. Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, that coordinated with the geometric shape of the building.
Adapted from the hexagonal hassock design, this globe stand exemplifies the three Organic Elements used by Wright throughout his lifetime. The metal base is triangular, the hexagonal globe support is wood, and the globe is circular.
