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.
The Obelisk I (One) Floor Globe, a combination of two woods, cherry and maple, is a striking adaptation of one of Mr. Wright’s vase designs. This one was one of several concepts that he developed in 1929 for Leerdam Fabrique in Germany. It was originally to be produced in high quality glass but was never manufactured due to its complexity. Assembly required.
