Coonley #5″ Key Ring. © 2009 The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. All rights reserved.
This design by Frank Lloyd Wright is part of our unique Key Rings collection. The design has silver line work with red, yellow, and blue accents on a black background that are reminiscent of the windows in the child’s playhouse designed by Wright for Avery Coonley in the suburbs of Chicago – representing balloons and confetti in a Fourth of July Parade. This key ring is made of a special zinc alloy and a braided stainless steel wire to hold the keys, with hand-applied enamel depicting the unique artwork or design done by the designer. The key ring is packaged in a black box.
Frank Lloyd Wright is considered to be one of the most iconic American architects of all time. Wright believed in designing structures that reflected humanity and its environment. He called this philosophy organic architecture, which was best exemplified by Fallingwater, one of the most famous works of American architecture. His innovation was exemplified in many structures including offices, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, and museums. He also designed various pieces of furniture as well as stained glass. Wright was also the author of numerous books and articles and was a popular lecturer in the United States and in Europe.
To this day, Wright is recognized as the greatest American architect of all time. His legacy is one of America “foremost cultural treasures. A portion of the proceeds from sales of this product supports the Foundation’s conversation and education programs.
