Meyer May desk
Frank Lloyd Wright has been recognised as ‘the greatest American Architect of all time’. In his lifetime he designed more than 1000 structures, with over 500 of them being completed.
In the early 1900s, Wright designed American midwest houses which are now named ‘prairie style’. The Prarie houses were created to develop an American style of architecture, that fit harmoniously within their natural environment. The sweeping horizontal lines match the expansive plains of the american mid-west.
Wright’s Meyer May house was designed in 1908 and is considered to be Michigan’s finest example of his Prarie style.
The Meyer May desk was created in 1908 as a collaboration between Frank Lloyd Wright and George Neidecken, and was designed especially to suit the home’s interior stylings.
The cherrywood desk has incorporated into Cassina’s i Maestri collection since 1996, and is available through Cassina.
