Swedish furniture brand Offecct recently teamed up with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to recreate the famed architect’s Mayan-inspired tiles that were used on the four Textile Block Houses.

The foundation gave the firm permission to recreate the style of tile used on the Ennis House, in Los Angeles. While cast in cement for Wright’s building, Offecct’s version is made from recycled molded polyester and is an addition to its Soundwave Acoustic Collection of interior panels.

“Offecct is a company with a strong interest in architectural history. We have always been great admirers of Frank Lloyd Wright and looked at his impressive body of work for inspiration,” said Kurt Tingdal, CEO of Offecct.

“This new collaboration and the product that is the outcome of it marks a highlight in the evolution of the company. To add an historical and world-famous design to our Soundwave acoustic collection, is a conscious choice.”

Stuart Graff, CEO of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, noted that the panels capture the “drama and beauty” of Wright’s timeless work.
