San Marcos World Globe, 12" Frank Lloyd Wright Collection
In 1928, Frank Lloyd Wright began creating a major remodeling project of the existing resort, the San Marcos in the Desert Hotel on the outskirts of Phoenix. The project was never completed due to the 1929 stock market crash, but the building design and the interior renderings contain a variety of interesting furniture and decorative features. This adapted globe stand showcases the 60 degree angled legs and the hexagonal top of a small accent table designed for the totally new special Dining Pavilion bordered by the garden terraces of the San Marcos in the Desert Hotel, Chandler, Arizona. (Project revised 1936).
