R & Company 20 Years of Discovery

Foreword by Evan Snyderman. Text by Glenn Adamson, Zesty Meyers, Dung Ngo, Dan Rubinstein, Pilar Viladas, James Zemaitis.

Founded in 1997 by Zesty Meyers and Evan Snyderman, renowned design gallery R & Company has always looked simultaneously backwards and forwards in its programming, promoting groundbreaking contemporary design and rescuing and preserving design history. Through their innovative exhibitions and publications, R & Company has been at the forefront of the collectible design movement.

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, including: the emergence of a market for Brazilian design; the championing of previously unheralded American midcentury masters; the fostering of a craft-forward contemporary design program; and the gallery’s passion for so-called “difficult” design.

Designers featured in this volume 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.
