The Hexhedra is a Designer globe with endless appeal and a unique selling point. Staying true to the designer, the Hexhedra is based on the first (and most famous) small home design by internationally celebrated architect, Frank Lloyd Wright.

With striking white oceans, deep walnut stained hardwood, earthy coloured landmasses, and the only globe to feature a copper plated meridian, the Hexhedra captures a classic piece of history through a contemporary style.

Discover the world through your fingertips with the raised mountain ranges and explore our planet with the highly detailed globe ball, featuring over 4000 place names.

About Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is an internationally celebrated architect and widely considered to be America’s greatest. He amazed the world with his innovative architecture and designs. His vision encompassed the buildings that he designed as well as their landscaping, furniture, lighting, and floor coverings, to create a unified whole.


The Frank Lloyd Wright Collection

This particular collection by Replogle Globes is inspired by Wright’s unique and timeless interior home designs. Replogle Globes and the FLW Foundation thoroughly reviewed more than 100 of the architect’s designs to select five unique examples to be recreated as globes.

“Each globe’s design is exact to Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs. Each piece matches identically the dimension and geometry of the furniture that it is based upon. The richly stained maple and oak wood used in the stands were carefully chosen to replicate the Prairie Period. Every stand, like every globe it holds, is a hand-made work of art.” - Dell Torgerson, Replogle Globes.


The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation

The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation is a global forum for multi-disciplinary discourse about the future of the built and natural environments, promoting education, scholarship, design and research.

Through programs designed to educate, inspire and motivate diverse audiences, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation advances dialogue and action to improve the quality, longevity and conservation of the built and natural environments while preserving the works and philosophies of Frank Lloyd Wright for the benefit of future generations. Wright established the Foundation - headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz. - in 1940 to be the repository of his life’s work.

The Foundation owns and operates: Taliesin in Spring Green, Wis., and Taliesin West in Scottsdale (Wright’s own homes and studios); the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture; and the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives. Both Taliesin and Taliesin West are National Historic Properties and are on the United States World Heritage Tentative List.

This is such a lovely looking globe, and whilst it's one of the more expensive on this site I would definitely say it's worth it, the colours are beautiful, it's smart but has a contemporary feel to it with a lovely gentle shine which just adds to making it look that little bit more special. Originally ordered the Hastings but returned for this, hope it's well received at Christmas! Thanks to just globes too for arranging an easy exchange, the item arrived in perfect condition Review by Louise (Posted on 29/03/2018)

Globus Hexhedra is a thing of exquisite beauty, colors and the workmanship. We ordered one for a very special gift, and indeed it was. We are particularly pleased with the service and the support we received from the staff of justGlobes. Review by Svetlana - Beograd (Posted on 29/03/2018)

Beautifully detailed globe with lovely colourings. This was a special birthday present and my husband was delighted with it. We have looked at many globes over the last couple of years and this was by far the nicest in this price range. The fact it is a FLW special edition is a bonus.

The Globe was bought specifically to fit in our lounge, both in colour and size, which it does remarkably well. We would have liked one that had a double axle but found this extremely difficult to locate and not within our other criterion. Review by John Payne (Posted on 29/03/2018)
