R & Company

New York

"There is an incredible energy in South Africa that makes it creatively stimulating for us in new, exciting ways. GUILD design fair expanded our horizons exponentially and presented a powerful message about the power of art and design to create connections between cultures."
- Evan Snyderman and Zesty Meyers

R & Company represents a distinguished group of historical and contemporary designers whose work is among the most innovative and finely crafted of their time.

Zesty Meyers and Evan Snyderman founded R 20th Century in 1997 to realize their combined goal of promoting a closer study, appreciation and preservation of 20th and 21st century design. They have garnered international acclaim for their revolutionary exhibitions and publications and for their commitment to preserving history through their extensive archives, library and private collection. Consistently, Meyers and Snyderman exhibit an extraordinary acumen for discovering and bringing designers to the forefront of the rapidly escalating design market as signified by the group they bring to GUILD, including the architecturally inspired work of David Wiseman and extraordinary glass pieces from Jeff Zimmerman.

R & Company present The Haas Brothers, and the collaborative ‘Afreaks’ collection created with South Africa’s Monkeybiz beading company and Bronze Age Foundry. The ground-breaking project 12 months in the making, with a highly skilled group that now call themselves the Haas Sistas, is premiered at GUILD.
