The design of this business card case is based on a portion of the painted decoration done in 1893-94 by Louis Sullivan for the Chicago Stock Exchange’s Trading Room. Sullivan designed a wall stencil decoration to cover the top portion of the walls and selected areas of the Trading Room’s ceiling. The Chicago Stock Exchange building was designed in the Prairie School/Modernist style. Louis Sullivan is known for his organic ornamentation that combined simple geometric patterns with stylized plant forms. Inspired by Owen Jones, Sullivan added his own angularity to the patterns.
