On the occasion of the gallery’s 20th anniversary, this publication offers new critical perspectives on the designers, themes, and trends R & Company has rediscovered and elevated.
Since 1997, R & Company has been a pioneer in discovering, curating, archiving, and presenting rare, exceptional, and iconic works to individuals and institutions. Published on the occasion of the gallery’s twentieth anniversary, this book offers new critical perspectives on the designers, themes, and emerging trends we have uncovered, rediscovered, and elevated, including the emergence of a market for Brazilian design, the championing of unheralded American mid-century masters, the fostering of a material-focused contemporary design program, and the gallery’s passion for so-called “difficult” design.
Unfolding through essays from leading writers on art, design, and craft, and illustrated by hundreds of archival, new, and behind-the-scenes gallery images, interior photos of collectors’ homes, and designers’ studios, it is a dynamic overview of the design market’s explosive past two decades, and its vibrant future. Featured designers include Wendell Castle, Rogan Gregory, Greta Magnusson Grossman, The Haas Brothers, Sergio Rodrigues, Katie Stout, Studio65, Joaquim Tenreiro, Thaddeus Wolfe, Jeff Zimmerman, and many more.
