Frank Lloyd Wright is generally considered to be the greatest American architect. His innovative designs and unmistakable style have made him a recognizable international name. The Replogle Usonian Frank Lloyd Wright Desktop Globe is based on an ottoman design concept that the master architect came up with in the 1940's. The 12 inch globe sits 18 inches tall on its solid, hardwood base and copper-plated semi-meridian. The earthy colors of the stand are complimented by the warm, bronze metallic landmasses. Set against the parchment colored ocean, the earthy tones of the countries create a handsome patchwork of hues that delight the eye. This antique style political map contains over 4,000 place names, making it a highly informative decorative marvel.
This desktop globe also features a raised relief; meaning that the world's varied topography is rendered three dimensionally on the surface of sphere. In this way, both the natural aspects and the political divisions of our planet are given their due on the Replogle globe. The Usonian Desktop Globe was constructed by the American Replogle company in collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright foundation. The attractive desktop globe is a fitting testament to Wright's great genius, and remains an unconventional yet completely timeless design marvel.
I got this globe for my office, and it looks great!
