Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is recognized world-wide as one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. His work heralded a new thinking in architecture, using innovation in design and engineering made possible by newly developed technology and materials. His creative ability extended far beyond the border of architecture to graphic design, furniture, art glass, textiles, and decorative elements for the home.
“The element of design is an element of divinity.” The designs in this small selection of four show a glimpse into the variety of styles of Wright’s decorative designs through his lifetime. Wright loved the simplicity of the circle, square, and triangle and experimenting with their endless combinations. To create these complex designs he used very simple equipment: the T-square, the compass, and the triangle.
