Alternating round and square floors rise up through the SC Johnson Research Tower designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in Racine. The building will open for public tours for the first time starting Friday, May 2.
Exterior walls in the building are made of glass tubes that allow in natural light while blocking what was once an industrial view.
Frank Lloyd Wright designed this desk and three-legged chair for workers at the building, but most employees' chairs were later modified to have four legs because people kept tipping over.
