One of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright's esteemed chairs is in production for the first time since 1990.
 
The Taliesin 1 armchair, known for its complex geometric structure, wasn't mass-produced by Italian furniture maker Cassina until the late 1980s It was then discontinued in 1990 when Cassina considered it "too avant-garde."
 
The chair is made from a single piece of folded beech plywood with a cherry wood veneer. The veneer can be stained in black oak or left natural.
 
The new model sees the chair's design slightly altered, with thicker padding, a more reclined backrest, and removed of its original feet.
 
Wright designed Taliesin for his Arizona home and studio in 1949.
