EMBARGO UNTIL JANUARY 25, 2023

Drawing on a connection that began over 80 years ago, the two organizations debut a collection for living and working at home.

Grand Rapids, MI, Jan. 25, 2023 – Steelcase will launch a new work from home collection as part of their relationship with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Celebrating an icon of modern work, the Frank Lloyd Wright Racine Collection by Steelcase reintroduces, reinterprets and reimagines the classic furniture designs of Wright, originally produced by Steelcase for the SC Johnson Administration building in Racine, Wisconsin in 1939.

Merging beauty and function in his philosophy of organic architecture, Wright’s unique furniture for the SC Johnson building’s Great Workroom pioneered a new way to work. As part of the Frank Lloyd Wright Racine Collection, select Signature pieces will faithfully match the style and finishes of the original furniture, with subtle adjustments to the collection’s proportions and scale to support modern living.
