R Artists + Designers are those whose work we consistently find to be among the most innovative, iconic and finely crafted of their time. We have chosen to focus more closely on these designers as the core of our collection and our exhibition and publication program.
The historical designers include those whose work is widely recognized as setting the tone for the modernist movement worldwide, as well as those who were no less influential but whose work is only now coming to light. The contemporary designers in this group are individuals whose pieces we think represent exceptional new ways of working with materials in the design of forms for both function and sculpture.
We work closely with the work of the R Artists + Designers to curate a collection that is incorporated into our full exhibition program. Additionally, we produce publications that help archive the work and the designers' processes, allowing us to educate the public and our clientele and to help promote select past and future icons of international design.
