Did Frank Lloyd Wright Create America’s Greatest Office? 

Happy Monday! These photos are from the SC Johnson headquarters in Racine, Wisconsin, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1937. Although the lily-pad columns in the building’s Great Workroom are impressive, Wright’s brilliant design pervades even the smallest details. The chair fabric was color-coded by department, each desk had a streamlined inbox/outbox system, and some chairs (like the one pictured above) had only three legs, supposedly to keep typists from slouching too far to either side.

    Lily-pad columns… I had known he was one of the most avant-garde architects of exteriors, but I never knew he made such...
