R 20th Century is pleased to present three exhibitions at DesignMiami this year. In our main booth, an exhibition of rare lighting by Verner Panton. Between 1955 and 1998, Panton designed approximately 25 sculptural lighting pieces that are now regarded as iconoclastic examples of 20th century design. A selection of his iconic lighting is on view alongside classic vintage designs by Brazilians Oscar Niemeyer and Joaquim Tenreiro.
In collaboration with Salon 94, we present a two-person exhibition of works by Paula Hayes (new silicone planters, terrariums and birdhouses) and Hugo França (handcrafted solid wood furniture from Brazil).
"New Objects: USA", organized in collaboration with Steuban Glass, showcases important new work by four of America's foremost artist-designers -- Wendell Castle, Michele Oka Doner, Ted Muehling, and Jeff Zimmerman.
