Amidst Frank Lloyd Wright’s Desert Laboratory in Arizona, Taliesin West, live rare product archives and records of architectural designs that have remained unexplored for many decades — until now. The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation has teamed up with trendy furniture firm Inside Weather to explore those creative chronicles. The result is the reimagining and manufacturing of the first-ever, limited-quantity run of the Usonia Collection furniture. The pieces embrace the Usonian philosophy, resulting in an eye-catching line that is both remarkably ergonomic and sculptural.
