Frank Lloyd Wright (born Frank Lincoln Wright, June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 projects, which resulted in more than 500 completed works.

American architect Frank Lloyd Wright played a leading role in transforming the practice of architecture early in the 20th century. Trained as an engineer at the University of Wisconsin, but strongly drawn to architecture, he began his career as an architect in Chicago, working in the offices of Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan. At the age of 29 he set up his own practice and began work on a number of residential projects, chiefly in the Oak Park area of Chicago. These “Prairie Houses,” designed in the early 1900’s, are characterized by their use of natural materials – stone, brick and wood. Their low elevations, and gently sloping roofs create a strong horizontal emphasis.

Wright claimed to build “organic” architecture that seemed to grow naturally out of the surrounding landscape. He believed the internal space, furnishings and decorative details of a house to be intrinsic to its architecture. Many of his projects incorporated site specific furniture and fittings. These unified projects were intended to possess a natural “organic” beauty that would promote the life of the human spirit. Instead of walls, furnishings were often used as spatial dividers, thereby creating more open interiors and a sense of flowing space.

Wright’s preoccupation with geometric forms and intersecting planes in his architecture, led him to develop a similar style for furniture. For example, a series of metal desks and chairs designed for the Larkin Building in Buffalo, New York, were designed to be functionally and visually unified with their surroundings. They were also among the first metal items for indoor use that did not mimic wood. The chairs were made of painted steel with leather upholstered seats and rigidly geometric backs with square perforations. In addition to furniture, Wright designed stained glass windows, ceramics and glass, metalwork and textiles. Wright’s work became distanced from its Arts & Crafts origins as he began to explore the structural and decorative potential of industrial concrete blocks which he used in the design of the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and four houses in Los Angeles.

Wolfgang Sirch The Ultimate Childrens Designer Toys- WWW.GIBRALTARFURNITURE.COM

Wolfgan Toys by Sirch

The Sirch family has been producing products in wood for over 300 years in Germany.

During the last part of the 20th century, the SIRCH Company specialized in industrial shipping pallets, which they continue to manufacture today.  After the death of his father Isidor Sirch, Wolfgang Sirch, an interior architect, became president.  For a new synergy, he brought Christoph Bitzer, a sculptor, into the company.
The Sirch-Bitzer team began designing and producing very special items for children under the brand name Sibi.  All Sibi products are handmade in the Sirch factory in Bavaria, primarily in wood. The first Sibi products introduced in 2000 were the VILLA Sibi modernist doll house, MAX push car and LORETTE Trailer.  Sibi products have been awarded the prestigious German “Spiel Gut” design award for toys.  The worldwide reception to Sibi designs has met with equally great success.

In 1922 she opened the galerie, “Jean Desert“ as a showroom for her own work. Eileen Gray was highly regarded by many leading artist of her time, including artists from the Bauhaus.

ART DECO FURNITURE – WWW.GIBRALTARFURNITURE.COM

Art Deco was a popular international design movement from 1925 until 1939, affecting the decorative arts such as architecture, interior design, and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as fashion, painting, the graphic arts and film. This movement was, in a sense, an amalgam of many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism, Bauhaus, Art Nouveau, and Futurism. Its popularity peaked in Europe during the Roaring Twenties and continued strongly in the United States through the 1930s. Although many design movements have political or philosophical roots or intentions, Art Deco was purely decorative. At the time, this style was seen as elegant, functional, and modern.

Q: ARE YOUR CLASSIC PRODUCTS COPIES OR ORIGNIALS?

A: We often get the question: “Are your pieces original?”

We sell many items that are fully licensed products from the official sources.

We also feature many lower cost alternatives for customers who are looking for cost effective options

All of our products are “mint in box” brand new items. (Original vintage products would be very expensive products to obtain. A few authentic, old originals are found in museums, or sell at astronomic, (but realistic) prices at auctions or at antique stores. Often times these pieces are often in very bad shape as a result of years of wear and tear.)

Instead Gibraltar offers both authentic and also high quality reproductions, at factory direct prices on all these pieces! Many of these items are “reproductions” of old designs. Our design experts have exactly copied each and every detail and faithfully executed all of the scale, aspects, and lines of these masterpieces.

Careful attention has been given to maintaining the same look, feel, and style of the Bauhaus icons that define modernism. You will be getting a perfectly made modern art piece, crafted in the European tradition, at a price you can’t beat!

We use overseas factories to achieve these results. We use due diligence to insure that all the right tools are used in this process. Despite the designers’ intention to create furniture which can easily be produced mechanically, the creation of modern classics requires considerable skilled hand labor and a wide variety of different production steps. We employ only perfect manufacturing methods in order to bend tubes and to make upholstery that keeps its shape for decades. The results are master pieces that ring true to the originals.

Our overseas factories use optimum methods to reproduce these beautiful Bauhaus and Modern Classics Furniture in a way so you can enjoy them year after year.

To illustrate, we offer the Barcelona series at our store. Mies van der Rohe designed the Lounge Chair and Ottoman for the German Pavilion at the International Exhibition of 1929 in Barcelona, Spain. The “X”-shaped Mies Lounge Chair and Ottoman features sleek minimalist line styling which produces a perfect blend of art and function. Gibraltar’s Mies Lounge Chair and Ottoman is made of heavy gauge solid stainless steel seamlessly welded and polished to a high luster, It features comfortable high density fire-retardant polyurethane foam wrapped in Dacron, enclosed in ticking, and encased in fine imported 100% Italian leather.

Many of the classics have undergone some construction changes since they were designed in the 20’s and 30’s. Today’s materials and tools allow for construction as crisp as the designers envisioned, but could not necessarily achieve due to the state of yesterdays technology. Many problems have occurred in older pieces when metal fatigue has resulted in damaged frames which can no longer be used. Our modern construction technique produces a metal frame with greater strength in its joints. This means your furniture, will be sturdier than the originals.

Our reproductions are very high quality new items designed for daily use. They are not numbered or stamped to justify the tripling of prices. If you purchase an item like this, you are actually paying for a license fee that is no longer required. The manufacture of such pieces is charging you a premium for a royalty that once went to a designer. Now that these designs have been paced into the public domain a patent payment is unnecessary. However, instead of lowering the price points on these editions the fabricators are happy to hold onto your money and pocket the difference. They will not lower their price levels to reflect this change to not offend their previous customers. Instead they are happy to charge thousands of dollars more for the same items that we sell for a fraction of the price.

Our entire pieces feature high quality imported premium heavy gauge steel. Ultra-Premium #304 Solid flat bar stock Stainless Steel pieces are used in each of our units. These are then hand polished to a super brilliant chrome style finish. Our frames are NOT made using lower cost carbon steel, which may be chrome-plated hollow tubes and then bolted/screwed together. Over the years this chrome will start to peel and corrode leaving you with an ugly unit.

All of our reproductions are made using 100% imported Italian leather. Multiple colors and grades of premium top grain Italian leather are available for your design requirements. We sources our hides from the same supplier that provides leather for Mercedes Benz and BMW automobiles Every square of leather is hand selected, piped, tufted and individually sewn by expert leather craftsmen Each piece is true to form, comfortable, and feature a luxurious cushion system.

Naturally there is a range in quality of the reproductions on the market. Be assured Gibraltar are tops in quality in every possible way! Today classic furniture is produced by many different manufacturers, some with great care and attention to details, others with less care. Many lower cost releases will compromise quality by using vinyl, pig leather, or low cost Chinese inferior hides.

Copy or original? We call the items what they truly are: “reproductions” of old design, no matter who produces them today. Our items do live up to all modern expectations on appearance and durability, even under intense scrutiny. They are all New Reproductions of Modern Classics at a price that can’t be beat!

Q: WHERE ARE YOUR REPRODUCTIONS MADE?

A: We sell these products from two main sources.

1. Italian leather, Italian stainless Steel, European construction. We source these models from Italy viaGordon International. We use 100% Italian Leather and 100% stainless steel frames. As Italian labor is more costly than non -European overseas sources the cost corresponding goes up. Please visit http://www.gordoninternational.com for pricing info. It takes 15-20 hours to pay these chairs. Labor in Europe is about $30 per hour. This makes the total cost higher. However, we mark down all of these models and the price that you will pay will be 30% off of the list price. We deep discount all of these models as we are a factory direct internet wholesaler.

2. Italian leather, Italian stainless Steel, Non-European construction. We source these models from our own overseas factory. We use 100% Italian leather and 100% stainless steel frames. As overseas labor is less expensive than European workmen the total price goes down accordingly. It takes 15-20 hours to pay these chairs. Non-European labor is about $3 per hour. This makes the total cost lower. We deep discount all of these models as we are a factory direct internet wholesaler.

The quality is virtually the same, the materials are the same, and the end product is the same. Therefore the choice is yours.

We ship factory direct so that you don’t have to pay a middle man for a mark up.
