The epic Replogle Obelisk Frank Lloyd Wright Floor Globe is the crown jewel of the line. The collaboration between Replogle and the Frank Lloyd Wright foundation reaches its apex in this colossal globe, which stands 50 inches tall and features a 16 inch globe. The brilliance of the master architect's visionary spirit is embodied in this model. The Obelisk is adapted from vase designs that the iconic architect created in 1929 for Leerdam Glassfabriek, the legendary Dutch glassware-producing factory. The two toned solid maple and cherry hardwood base is a quintessential concept from America's greatest architect. It accurately portrays Wright's style, which somehow manages to feel both futuristic and timeless. A die-cast meridian, displaying latitudinal calibrations, is gimbal-mounted to the frame, enabling the viewer to swivel the globe for closer inspection.
When examining the floor globe, it is impossible not be enthralled by the parchment style antique-ocean political map. The beige colored ocean is offset by the earth-toned shades of the countries. Classical map characteristics like ornamented compass roses, cartouches and legends populate the Replogle globe. Despite the nostalgic flavor, the Obelisk contains completely up to date 21st century cartography. Whether engrossed in this world globe's geographical splendor or simply admiring its visionary design, the Replogle Obelisk Frank Lloyd Wright Floor Globe is designed to impress. This astonishing achievement is sure to be the grand centerpiece of any room it resides in.
It is the nicest globe I have seen. I went to Franks house in Arizona to see it in person, and it looks even better in person. I ordered one for my home office right away. It's even raised when mountains are ☺️.
The Frank Lloyd Wright globes are the best, and this is my favorite out of the bunch. I'm glad I chose it. It arrived today and looks even better in person. The wood is finely crafted and you can tell it is study and well made.
