Description:
 

Frank Lloyd Wright's first prairie house type chair, made of oak wood. Strong and solid, recalls medieval hand crafted pieces, severity and uprightness of gothic style.

Wright saw the chair as an architectural challenge. He used tall straight chairs as a screen around tables. The simple shapes of his furniture permitted machine production, making the designs affordable. Indeed, Wright believed that machines could actually enhance the designs.

"The machine has liberated the beauties of nature in wood," Wright told the Arts and Crafts Society in a 1901 lecture. "...With the exception of the Japanese, wood has been misused and mishandled everywhere," Wright said. info source: architecture.about.com
