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 design of this coaster is adapted from the main entrance sidelight window of the George Blossom House in Chicago, Illinois. To accent the main entrance, he created an impressive half-circle columned, covered entrance with an arched glass header and coordinating sidelight windows for the doorway. Both of these designs harken back to the lacey ornamentation of Wright’s mentor, Louis Sullivan.
