Steelcase and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation have joined together to launch a new collection of furniture designs rooted in Frank Lloyd Wright’s principles.
Steelcase FLW Collection
The Steelcase x FLW Collection, technically named the “Frank Lloyd Wright Racine Collection,” represents a new relationship between Steelcase and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. The range of furniture will include iconic reintroductions as well as new pieces rooted in Wright’s principles.
Steelcase’s connection with Frank Lloyd Wright goes way back to 1939 when they produced the original furniture for Wright’s revolutionary SC Johnson Administration Building in Racine, Wisconsin (shown below), and has continued since 1985 through their ongoing stewardship of Wright’s Meyer May House in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Drawing upon the Foundation’s Archives and applying the principles of organic architecture, Steelcase will continue to create ongoing collections of fine furnishings that revisit, reintroduce and reinterpret Wright’s work for the world he envisioned.
Steelcase is now looking ahead with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to continue Wright’s legacy for the world he envisioned. They are honored to help carry on Wright’s vision, “to make life more beautiful, the world a better one for living in, and to give rhyme, reason, and meaning to life”.
