Florida Southern 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.
Commissioned in 1938, Frank Lloyd Wright designed eighteen structures to be built on the shores of Lake Hollingsworth in Lakeland, Florida. Nine of the structures were completed between 1938 and 1958; these included a chapel, library, administration buildings, seminar buildings, science building, an industrial arts center, and water dome. The campus now comprises the largest single site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture in the world. Two main textile blocks from the construction system were used in the buildings on the property, lending them a sculptural quality. This coaster is based on the details of the handcrafted interlocking textile block used to build the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel.
