Frank Lloyd Wright Collection Globe:
Frank Lloyd Wright's overall concept for his buildings included the integration of the furniture and decorative objects. Replogle globes has developed a line of globes adapted from select Wright drawings and concepts, chosen by Replogle and authorized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
In 1952, Wright developed a series of hexagonal metal furniture to complement the geometric shape of Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, which he designed.
Adapted from his hexagonal hassock design, this globe stand exemplifies the three organizing elements used by Wright through his lifetime. The metal base is triangular, the hexagonal globe support is wood, and the globe is circular. The globe is supported by a full swing meridian inserted within a hexagon shaped wooden piece.
