Frank’s Furniture Illustrated



How about this for your office?

Within the wonderful white walls of the High Museum in Atlanta sits this lovely piece of furniture, two pieces actually both by Frank. Frank Lloyd Wright another architect with whom I am infatuated. 

He is generally considered as the foremost American architect of the 20th century. He designed more than a thousand buildings including the Guggenheim in NYC.

Furniture was vital to Wright’s thinking. He believed that architecture, interiors and furnishings must arise from the same principles.  This desk and chair reflects circular shapes and brick colour of the S. C. Johnson & Son Building for which they were made. With frames of cast-aluminium piping cantilevered work surface, swinging rather than sliding drawers and removable wastebaskets – ingenious!
