Frank Lloyd Wright is considered the most influential American architect of all time. His seminal ideas and over a thousand architectural works, he revolutionized the domestic interior and helped defining the modern home. To Frank Lloyd Wright, furniture was an integral part of his architecture, and his pieces have been collected by museums and passionate collectors worldwide for decades. By creating open plans, and integrating architecture into its landscape, Wright was constantly rethinking the American home and its furnishings. With an emphasis on a single large living space, conceived as the heart of the home that served multiple functions of living, dining, entertaining, and conversation, Wright envisioned a reformed and influential way of living. His domestic architecture came to support this type of lifestyle, and demonstrated the power of the physical environment to enhance everyday life. The film on collecting furniture and decorative by Frank Lloyd Wright will air in April, and in the meantime, here are some shots from the shoot of yesterday. I want to thank Cassina for making it possible. On top is the breathtaking dining suite from the Husser House in Chicago, now in the collection of Huntington.
