The monumental design of the Replogle Wright Frank Lloyd Wright Floor Globe makes this extraordinary model in the top tier of the collection. The stand, made by Replogle, is based off of a Frank Lloyd Wright drawing of an unidentified concept for a Prairie Home he worked on in the early 1900's. The only words identifying the drawing said, "Something like this," scrawled in Wright's handwriting on the paper. The 16 inch globe is held 39 inches high by the remarkable base. Made of walnut-finish hardwood, the pedestal style stand supports a square horizontal cradle that holds the globe. The sphere itself is gimbal-mounted to the frame by a full die-cast meridian, which features latitudinal calibrations. Thus, the globe can easily be swiveled up or down for close investigation.
The political map features an antique style ocean. The parchment-colored waters are accented by the pale earth tones of the landmasses. The political map features thousands of place names that are contemporary despite the globe's vintage flourishes. The raised-relief globe gives the map three-dimensionality, as the planet's mountain ranges dramatically emerge from the surface of the globe. The Replogle Wright Frank Lloyd Wright Floor Globe is a visionary model. The original design remains timeless in its appeal, while still feeling futuristic. The quality craftsmanship of Replogle's adaptation is undeniable, and a steadfast tribute to the design genius of Frank Lloyd Wright.
Frank Lloyd Wright design matched with the antique style map makes this a five star globe. I've had it for a week and it is just an epic world globe. Recommended for anyone for a passion with geography and love of architecture history!
