For the past twenty years, New York-based design gallery R & Company has been a pioneer in discovering, curating, archiving, and presenting rare, exceptional, and iconic works to individuals and institutions.
Through their groundbreaking exhibitions and publications, the gallery has been at the forefront of the collectible design movement.
Published on the occasion of the R & Company's twentieth anniversary, this book offers four new critical perspectives on the designers, themes, and emerging trends R & Company has uncovered, re-discovered, and elevated, including: the emergence of a market for Brazilian design; the championing of un- heralded American midcentury masters; the fostering of a craft-forward 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 the collectors' homes, and designers' studios, it is a dynamic overview of the design market's explosive past two decades, and its vibrant future.
