Photographer: Philip MrozinskiWright's love of native woods can be seen in his use of material for this oak chair. He borrowed the Arts and Crafts ideals of high quality design and the use of local materials, but chose machine production over traditional hand-workmanship to create the clean, geometric design of this chair.
