In this era of technological advancements, where artificial intelligence and virtual reality are rapidly gaining traction, we have chosen to showcase the human-centered design of Frank Lloyd Wright in our exhibition. Renowned for his philosophy of “Organic Architecture,” Wright advocated for a harmonious integration of architecture and nature, as a response to the dehumanizing impact of functionalist architecture of the time. The mesmerizing geometric forms and warm, indirect lighting of the TALIESIN series of light fixtures stirs our senses and evokes a sense of joy and happiness that is often lost in our contemporary world.
