TALIESIN 1

Design Frank Lloyd Wright

Origami in wood

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1949 for the living room in his home-studio in Arizona, Taliesin 1 is a design armchair obtained by folding a single surface in plywood, like origami.

PRODUCTION YEAR

1949

Origami in wood, emblematic of Frank Lloyd Wright’s design maturity and ever- surprising aesthetic code, this armchair was created in 1949 for Taliesin West, his home-studio in Scottsdale, Arizona, today the headquarters of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. An icon that highlights the architect’s shift to more sophisticated solutions, the chair has angled components and a complex geometrical structure that ensures its stability. Manufactured by Cassina between 1986 and 1990, the Taliesin 1 chair is constructed from a single piece of folded plywood evocative of the Japanese art of origami. Thirty years later, Cassina has revisited the design, in collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology meet in the skilful carpentry workmanship, while added comfort conferred by a more reclined backrest and a thicker padding. This new version is also available as a limited edition in three colours, where the internal upholstery is in short hair leather, tinted in the same shade as the lacquered structure.

I Maestri

Frank Lloyd Wright

Wright was born on June 8th, 1867 in Richland Center, Wisconsin, USA. Before his birth, his mother was determined that the child she was carrying would become the greatest architect of all time. A teacher herself, she discovered the Froebel system of education, known as the “kindergarten gifts”, according to which a child was taught to draw using basic geometric shapes and forms.
