R & Company is a New York-based gallery representing historical and contemporary design from the United States, South America and Europe. Founded in 1997 by Zesty Meyers and Evan Snyderman, the gallery runs an exhibition program with the goal of promoting a closer study, appreciation and preservation of design.
R & Company specializes in unique and rare historical works by designers including Wendell Castle, Greta Magnusson Grossman, Poul Kjærholm, Verner Panton, Sergio Rodrigues and Joaquim Tenreiro, to name a few. The gallery also represents contemporary designers including Renate Müller, Thaddeus Wolfe, The Haas Brothers, David Wiseman and Jeff Zimmerman.
The Afreaks series is comprised of fantastical beaded objects co-created by The Haas Brothers with The Haas Sisters, a group of women from South African townships. Each design begins as a sketch by Niki and Simon Haas and then, through the beading process, is imbued with the beader’s personal sense of color and pattern. To create the threedimensional detailing on the works, Simon Haas also developed beading algorithms that comprise a proprietary operating system based on the recreation and manipulation of patterns and rhythms found in nature. The resulting design works are extraordinarily expressive forms that embody the history of indigenous beading cultures as well as the Haas’ unique design aesthetic.
