The Frank Lloyd Wright Floor Globe.

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the early 1900s, this floor globe is a concept that was intended for one of his Prairie Homes but never came to fruition until now. Made by Replogle Globes, crafters of fine terrestrial globes for 79 years, the floor globe is based on a sketch found in the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation archives. The globe stand exhibits the form-follows-function principle, strong horizontal lines, and simplified geometric forms that were hallmarks of the Prairie School movement. The globe is painstakingly handcrafted by artisans and the solid maple frame is carved, sanded, and stained by hand, and finished with a deep walnut stain. It has antique-style parchment colored oceans and shows 4,100 place names as approved by the U.S. government. Additional cartographic features include raised relief mountain ranges and shipping routes that depict famous voyages including Charles Darwin's journey to the Galapagos Islands and Christopher Columbus's expedition to the New World. The 16" globe rests at a 23.5 angle, replicating the earth's position in relation to the sun, and has a full-swing, die-cast metal meridian. Minor assembly. 39" H x 23" W. (26 lbs.)
