Item Description

Rare early 605 Allen table in cherrywood, designed in 1917 by Frank Lloyd Wright and made by Cassina. Marked with Cassina stamp, early serial no. and Frank Lloyd Wright signature, made in the first year of production, 1986. During his 70-year career, American architect Frank Lloyd Wright championed a personal belief that architecture should address the physical, social, and spiritual needs of the inhabitant while remaining in harmony with the landscape. Wright, who punctuated nature with a capital “N”, placed great importance on the unity of man and nature and strived to compose environments where the architecture and land formed a unified whole, as in Falling water (1935), the house he built atop a waterfall. Throughout his career, Wright continually embraced the social and technological advancements of the 20th century and successfully aligned new opportunities with his values. In 1991, the American Institute of Architects named Wright “the greatest American architect of all time,” and in the same year, his Falling water home was voted “the best all time work of American architecture.”
