The Replogle San Marcos Frank Lloyd Wright Desktop Globe is a sterling adaptation from the master American architect's drawings. The stand's startling composition comes from concepts Wright made for a luxurious resort called San Marcos in the Desert in Chandler, Arizona. The hotel was ultimately never built due to the stock market crash of 1929, but its hypothetical designs served as inspiration for this model. The 12 inch globe is held 22 inches tall by the three legged stand. This desktop globe's legs are angled at 60 degree and support a hexagonal top. A full die-cast meridian is gimbal mounted to the frame.
The beige colored antique oceans match the beautiful brown hue of the walnut-finish stand. The 21st century cartography, although completely current, is presented in a nostalgic style on this "Classic Series" map from Replogle. The collaboration between Replogle and the Frank Lloyd Wright foundation is an incredible fruitful one, as evidenced by this curious, enchanting globe. The Replogle San Marcos Frank Lloyd Wright Desktop Globe is one of the most dynamic desktop models from the line. The faithful adaptation of Wright's design gives the world globe an otherworldly quality; an unmistakable feeling that comes from concepts that originate in the architect's wild imagination.
I got this globe because I had never seen one that looked like this! It always gets comments when people see it in our home.
