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.
