100% Made in Italy. American cherry solid wood frame. American cherry cherrywood, natural or lacquered, hollow-core top. Top available also in 280 cm.
The Allen table was designed by Wright in 1917 for the residence of Henry J. Allen in Wichita, Kansas. The “Taliesin2” table dates to 1925; Wright used it as a dining table, in the living room of his famous studio-home. He built “Taliesin House” in 1911 at the top of a hill in Spring Green, in southern Wisconsin. It was destroyed twice by flames and rebuilt each time. The solidity and austerity of the tables are reminiscent of the style and quality typical of the movement of American Arts and Crafts. At the same time, there are evident traces of the marvellous and ageless architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright: the simple, elegant use of geometry, the search for harmony, the close relationship with nature. American cherry hardwood frame. American cherrywood hollow-core top, natural or lacquered, also available in different sizes.

A doctor can bury his mistakes; an architect can only instruct his client to cover them with creepers.

Charismatic, elegant, eccentric, an authentic genius, the American Frank Lloyd Wright enjoyed a long, full-fledged career: he developed more than thousand designs of houses, buildings, churches, schools, libraries, bridges and museums, and also furniture pieces, lamps, table furnishings, fabrics and graphic arts. The mainstays of his architectural style are an absolute quest for simplicity – beyond all ornaments – and his relationship with nature, a source of inspiration in both form and choice of materials.

An architectural design that seeks its resolution in a complete harmony of lines and spaces, later celebrated all over the world as “organic architecture”. Wright was profoundly tied to his country, the new world, and to the American pioneer spirit. This is why he chose not to seek his inspiration in the architectural traditions of old Europe, but rather in Japanese, Oriental and Indo-American forms. And while Europe was celebrating the advent of industrial materials, Wright preferred the natural qualities and authenticity of wood, declaring: “For man, wood is universally beautiful. Man loves the close bond he has with wood, and he wants to feel it in his hands, pleasant to the touch and to the eye.”
