Frank Lloyd Wright Collection Globe:
THE BETH SHOLOM
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 1954, Frank Lloyd Wright began work on the pyramidal-shaped Beth Sholom Synagogue in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, now a registered National Historic Landmark. The base of the Beth Sholom globe was adapted from one of Wright's designs for a hexagonal, walnut and copper planter in the building. The unique base supports a 12" diameter, illuminated ball inspired by globes from centuries past. The flip of a light switch, lights the globe.
