Frank Lloyd Wright Neckties

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT - 1867-1959 is recognized as the 20th century's greatest architect. His buildings as well as his other commissions represent some of the world's most important architectural and design treasures. During his more than 70-year career, Wright created nearly 800 works, including his famous Prairie houses, Usonian buildings, offices and resorts, churches and temples, and finally, an art museum. In his art, Frank Lloyd Wright transformed the materials of nature into forms and spaces idealized by the human mind - creating things nearly divine. Born of the intimate beauty of Wright's decorative details, the Frank Lloyd Wright® Neckwear Collections seek to convey Wright's monumental vision of the human spirit. These Frank Lloyd Wright® Collection products are authorized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Taliesin West, Scottsdale, Arizona. A portion of the sales of these ties supports the conservation and education programs of the foundation.
Ties are 57" long and 3 3/4" wide unless otherwize noted.
In ties designated as "woven" the design develops in the weaving process instead of being printed on the surface.

Rather than applying ornament to a surface, Wright incorporated it into the structure itself. Cast concrete lent itself perfectly to this task. Frieze Tile (1950), Open Block (1924) and Shadow Blocks (1923) are based on Wright's cast concrete block designs. He wrote in 1923 "The concrete block? The cheapest (and ugliest) thing in the building world. Why not see what could be done with that gutter-rot? It might be permanent, noble, beautiful. We would take that despised outcast of the building industry (and) find a hiterto unsuspected soul to it, make it live as a thing of beauty, textured like the trees."

In 1926 Wright made a series of twelve abstract designs which he proposed be used as covers for Liberty. a literary magazine of the time. Each of the twelve illustrated one month of the year. The cover designs, with their bright colors and abstract patterns, proved too avant garde for the contemporary publishing world and the project was abandoned. as late as 1955, Wright had them redrawn as carpet designs.
