Frank Lloyd Wright - Scarf - Coonley, Oblong
This 100% silk scarf is part of the Modern Museum of Art's (MoMA) Frank Lloyd Wright collection.
The festive abstract balloon-and-confetti theme of the leaded-glass windows designed by Wright for the Avery Coonley Playhouse (c. 1912), Riverside, Illinois, and a similar one for the Imperial Hotel, Tokyo, has inspired generations of designers. Their lively combinations of line, form, and color are newly reinterpreted in this crepe scarf. The bold colors and pattern of this design create a vibrant fashion statement.
Frank Lloyd Wright is considered to be one of the most iconic American architects of all time. Wright believed in designing structures that reflected humanity and its environment.

His innovation was exemplified in many structures including offices, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, and museums. He also designed various pieces of furniture as well as stained glass. Wright was also the author of numerous books and articles and was a popular lecturer in the United States and in Europe.
