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.
