DS Kaufmann Office Mural Welcome Mat
This design comes from the mural in an office Wright designed for his most distinguished patron, department store owner Kaufmann, who installed it in his store in downtown Pittsburgh. Frank Lloyd Wright's work with Kaufmann is probably best known for resulting in the completion of the 1934 Kaufmann weekend home, Fallingwater. The office was one of a group of designs for Kaufmann which included a planetarium and office building.
Although designed for a wealthy client, the office was constructed largely of modest materials which became typical of Wright’s better-known Usonian houses. The mural above Kaufmann's desk was described by Wright as a “marquetry plywood wall”, it is a fine example of Wright’s geometric abstractions of nature.
