About R & Company

Celebrating 20 years in business, R & Company represents a distinguished group of historic and contemporary designers whose work is among the most innovative and finely crafted of their time.

Initially founded as R 20th Century in 1997 by Zesty Meyers and Evan Snyderman, the gallery is defined by their combined goals of promoting a closer study, appreciation, and preservation of 20th and 21st century design.

Meyers and Snyderman have garnered international acclaim for their groundbreaking exhibitions and publications. Their passionate commitment to historic preservation is embodied in the R & Company archives, library, and private collection. Consistently, Meyers and Snyderman exhibit an extraordinary acumen for discovering and bringing designers to the forefront of the rapidly escalating design market.

R & Company is currently developing exhibitions and publications about its represented designers, encompassing a diverse program that includes work from North America, South America, Europe, and Asia produced between 1945 and today. In addition to international participation in respected exhibitions and fairs, the R & Company exhibition program in New York is anchored by two gallery spaces located in the Tribeca East Historic District: 82 Franklin Street, opened in 2000, and the new 64 White Street expansion opened in 2018. The 64 White Street space provides a dynamic new platform for continued exploration into historic and contemporary design. Through passion, research, and collecting, R & Company continues to champion collectible design and develop the contemporary marketplace.
