Miniature Johnson Wax Chair

Frank Lloyd Wright, 1939

The Johnson Wax Chair is characterized by round forms which also reflect the lines of a famous building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, namely the S.C. Johnson & Son Company Administration Building in Racine, Wisconsin. When it was opened in 1939, the company building caused a veritable sensation. Illumination is exclusively by means of surface lighting and the pictures of the offices featuring a »forest« of the round pillars complete with leaves and buds were seen the world over. Wright believed the furniture, rooms and even the building itself were an abstracted organic continuation of the surrounding landscape or cityscape.
