Creative Edge Master Shop (Fairfield, Iowa) entered into a new licensing agreement with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation that authorizes Creative Edge to interpret distinctive designs from the Foundation’s extensive archives in stone, terrazzo and metal for residential and commercial hard-surface flooring.
The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation archives contain the world’s most complete collection of materials related to a single artist. Wright’s distinctive architectural designs range from residences executed in the Prairie style of the late 19th century, to modern styles including Fallingwater, the Usonian Homes and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in the late 1950s.
Creative Edge’s waterjet interpretations of Frank Lloyd Wright's design will use terrazzo, stone and metal. The FLW Foundation, in keeping with the living legacy of Wright’s work, will approve all fabrication plans and designs.
"The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation is excited about this new partnership with Creative Edge Master Shop to design beautiful custom hard surface floors that draw inspiration from Wright’s philosophy of organic architecture and his powerful connection with Nature,” says Stuart Graff, President and CEO of the FLW Foundation. “The Foundation exists to enrich society through an understanding of his ideas, architecture and design and we feel this new collaboration will help showcase our important mission.”
The FLW Foundation, established by Wright in 1940, along with the owners of various Frank Lloyd Wright building sites, own copyrights that give them exclusivity to duplicate buildings and designs created by the renowned architect, which are protected by copyright and trademark law.
