Volute dining table
Frank Lloyd Wright's vision made him unwilling to build the Guggenheim Museum in New York, in an era when the city's skyline lacked architectural excellence. His decision to take on the challenge and project an organic form in the middle of an overbuilt area marked a crucial turning point in the city. Outstanding from outside-in, the spiral design on the interior takes visitors on a languid downward slope to view the art. As ironwood veneers adorn the table top and its legs spiral towards the ground, Volute dining table is a homage to modernism, in honour of the Prairie school of architecture.
