Frank Lloyd Wright 607 Taliesin 1 Armchair

Category: Living

From architecture to design, Frank Lloyd Wright was a true renaissance man whose innovations helped to shape a generation. Now, thanks to a collaboration between the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and original furniture manufacturer Cassina, one of his most famous designs is finding its way back into homes after a nearly 30-year hiatus.

The Taliesin I Chair was one of Wright’s original pieces in 1949 and featured a refreshing angular design that set it apart from its rounded counterparts. Where other furniture builders were focused on a variety of different woods, components, and fabrics, the Taliesin was comprised of a single piece of plywood — folded and contoured in an origami-like fashion. Along with the lacquered wood frame, a more relaxed backrest and thicker padding have been added to meld more intimately with modern furniture. The chair will come in two original Cassina colorways, a variety of beautiful finishes, and three limited edition colors that utilize short hair leather.
