In 1933, when Frank Lloyd Wright converted the original gymnasium of his Hillside Home School, located in Spring Green, Wisconsin, into a theater, he designed lighting pendants composed of rectangular light boxes and plywood shields to be suspended from the tall ceiling. These fixtures proved to be a lighting innovation, providing comfortable indirect light without the use of glass or shades.

In 1952, when the theater was rebuilt following a fire, Wright modified the design of the original fixtures for use in the dining room, attaching them to the oak beam overhead. He found their soft indirect light so pleasing that he had a standing floor lamp of the same design fabricated for use in his own home, Taliesin. The iconic lamp filters light through adjustable wooden shields that mimic the branches and leaves of a tree.

This detailed replica is a special order item and can be manufactured in cherry, walnut, or black stain. The Taliesin II Floor Lamp has 10, 15 Watt incandescent bulbs pre-installed, as well as a foot switch for easy power management. It is handcrafted by American artisans.  Weight: 28 lbs. Height: 80" Base: 16"x 16"
