The Replogle Beth Sholom Illuminated Frank Lloyd Wright Desktop Globe takes inspiration from the American architect's classic Beth Sholom synagogue in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. The iconic pyramid shaped temple has hexagonal walnut and copper planters decorating the interior that serve as inspiration for the Replogle world globe. The wooden and metal stand adapted from the Wright design supports a 12 inch globe, standing 16 inches tall total. Replogle's beautiful globe design features an antique-style political map. The parchment-colored oceans are accented by the soft hues of the countries on the political map. The appealing color scheme compliments the rich, brown color of the base. Thousands of contemporary place names populate the political map.
A flip of the switch brings out the radiant colors of this illuminated globe. Watch the room come alight with the gentle earthy hues emanating from the classically influenced world globe. Despite the Replogle Beth Sholom Illuminated Frank Lloyd Wright Desktop Globe's unusual base, it retains the architect's trademark style that feels both nostalgic and forward thinking simultaneously. Wright's completely singular artistic perspective is given a fitting homage with this brilliant Replogle globe. Bring a portion of the modernist masterpiece into your home, office or school with the illuminated globe.
Globes are totally fun AND tceahes too! Collecting smaller globes years ago was getting to be an issue. If I spot one reasonably priced ... I still buy it! They look best on a high cabinet ... all together. Peeve = dusting em all.
I'm a huge fan of Frank Lloyd Wright and was excited to find out that there are globes out there based on his designs. I think this is a really great tribute to his style and it looks great on my desk!
