Vinyl-Lite had an exciting piece of history come into our factory today that we are really excited about! Vinyl-Lite has been contracted to restore glass from the doors of an original FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT house! The glass we are restoring belongs to a woman who was a student of Frank LLoyd Wright. The original Frank LLoyd Wright house that the glass came from was demolished. The glass that is not owned by this woman was donated to the Metropolitan Museum of Arts! We are beyond thrilled to have a part in this project. It will be ongoing over the coming weeks and we will take plenty of pictures to keep you updated; we hope you enjoy them as much as we do. We are also in the process of identifying the name of the original house and will let you know as soon as we hear.
Before Pictures of the glass:
Who was Frank Lloyd Wright? He was an “American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures and completed 532 works. Wright believed in designing structures which were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by his design for Fallingwater (1935), which has been called “the best all-time work of American architecture”. His work includes original and innovative examples of many different building types, including offices, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, and museums. Wright also designed many of the interior elements of his buildings, such as the furniture and stained glass.” – Wikepedia
