Natural Inspiration: Elemental Wright from Designtex

Material innovation company Designtex has partnered with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to release Elemental Wright, a new collection of textiles, wallcoverings and custom materials inspired by learning, iteration and nature.

Elemental Wright is rooted in the teachings and philosophies of Frank Lloyd Wright, drawing inspiration from Wright’s pioneering approach of incorporating nature within the built environment, learning from essential geometric systems and color palettes. 

The collection introduces three woven upholstery textiles—one based on Frank Lloyd Wright’s original design, the other two based on artworks by Vern Swaback and Eugene Masselink, members of the Taliesin Fellowship—as well as two digitally printed wallcovering designs, a series of Digital Studio patterns, and a fully customizable digital asset that reissues Wright’s Design for Hillside Theatre Curtain to evoke their sense of proportion, ornamentation, material texture and consideration of biophilic principles for greater well-being.
