Coonley Playhouse Square Coasters, Set of 4
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is recognized world-wide as one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. His work heralded a new thinking in architecture, using innovation in design and engineering made possible by newly developed technology and materials. His creative ability extended far beyond the border of architecture to graphic design, furniture, art glass, textiles, and decorative elements for the home.
This design is adapted from one of the many art glass windows in the Avery Coonley Playhouse, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1912 for Avery and Queene Coonley in Riverside, Illinois. Designed originally to appeal to children, each one of the distinctly different art glass patterns of the Coonley Playhouse windows share the theme of a unique abstract representation of elements seen in a parade - balloons, flags, and confetti.
4" square coasters, backed with cork. Includes four coasters, four of the same design.
Made in USA.
