Renate Müller: Toys + Design
12 October 2010 - 8 January 2011
82 Franklin St NY 10013
R 20th Century is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of Renate Müller’s work in the United States, featuring rare vintage and exclusive contemporary designs by the pioneering German toy maker. Renate Müller will be in attendance at the exhibition opening Tuesday, October 12, and will lead hands-on demonstrations at a special Family Day on Saturday, October 16.
Conceived in the early 1960s during her student days at the Polytechnic for Toy Design in Sonneberg, Germany, Renate Müller’s exceptional, uniquely whimsical toy animals and shapes have been designed and hand-made in exactly the same way since 1967 and hotly collected by design enthusiasts for years.
