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 home décor and art glass designs in this coaster selection show just some of Frank Lloyd Wright’s many decorative designs that incorporate chevron shapes. Wright loved the simplicity of geometry and experimenting with it in endless combinations. Wright believed that the triangle shape was the symbol of courage and aspiration; the chevron is a derivation of the fundamental triangular form. To create the resulting complex designs, he used very simple equipment: the T-square, the compass, and the triangle.
