Ok, sit back and relax, I want to tell you the story of the Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesin 2 floor light, now reissued by Yamagiwa.
The original design was produced as a pendant light for a gymnasium back in 1933, but was modified for domestic use in the 1950s. Impressed with the indirect lighting effect produced by the ceiling lights, Frank Lloyd Wright amended the design to a floor lamp for his own Taliesin home – and this is that design.
A totem-like mix of cherry wood and incandescent bulbs (for the glowing light), it works either as a piece of domestic sculpture or functional design, not to mention a piece of hstory for your home. It retails for just over £1,000.
