ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE Debuts Frank Lloyd Wright® Signature Decorative Grille Collection


BROOKLYN, NEW YORK | FEBRUARY 7, 2020

ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE is honored to announce the Frank Lloyd Wright® Signature Decorative Grille Collection, a collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright® Foundation to produce high-end HVAC grille covers inspired by the distinctive architecture of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright®. These specialty grilles are now available online at archgrille.com in several stock sizes and a variety of finishes and powder coat colors. ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE is able to provide estimates for custom applications on a case-by-case basis, pending project approval. 

Honoring the Legacy of a World-Renowned Architect

Frank Lloyd Wright® (1867-1959) is recognized worldwide as one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. His work heralded a new thinking in architecture, using innovations in design and engineering made possible by new technologies and materials while taking inspiration from — and working in harmony with — the natural world. His buildings represent some of the best examples of the organic architecture movement, and his creative ability extended beyond architecture to graphic design, furniture, art glass, textiles, and decorative elements for the home.

Designed with the Mid-Century Modern Project In Mind

The Frank Lloyd Wright® Signature Decorative Grille Collection includes grille designs that are suited for renovations of mid-century modern spaces but that will also appeal to architects, designers, and homeowners who simply appreciate the work of Frank Lloyd Wright®. Clients can choose from grilles inspired by elements from classic Frank Lloyd Wright® designs such as the K.C. DeRhodes House, the Frederick C. Robie House, the Park Inn Hotel, and more. 

The decorative grilles are fabricated using post-consumer 94% recycled aluminum and come with several finishing options, including Aluminum Brushed Satin and Black, White, or Antique Bronze powder coats. Stock models are available in several standard sizes that will suit the desired airflow distribution needs in any residential or commercial application.

A Collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright® Foundation

Created as part of a collaboration between ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE and the Frank Lloyd Wright® Foundation, a portion of the proceeds from sales of the Frank Lloyd Wright® Signature Decorative Grille Collection support the Frank Lloyd Wright® Foundation’s conservation and education program.

“We are mid-century modern design enthusiasts ourselves, and it has been a privilege to partner with the Frank Lloyd Wright® Foundation to bring this project to life,” says Stephen J. Giumenta, ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE Co-Owner & Design Engineer. “We’re even more thrilled to be able to support the Foundation’s mission of inspiring society through an understanding and experience of Frank Lloyd Wright®’s ideas, architecture, and design.”
