Designs For Today

R 20TH CENTURY GALLERY IS HOSTING TWO EXHIBITIONS IN DECEMBER: DAVID WISEMAN AND THE OBJECTS SHOW, BOTH THROUGH JANUARY 12, 2013.

New York’s R 20th Century Gallery stands out for its collection and exhibitions of special designs. In David Wiseman’s show you can observe the designer’s unique approach to everyday objects in everything from tiny salt shakers to pieces of furniture. Curated by the gallery’s founders, Evan Snyderman and Zesty Meyers, The Objects Show features a broad array of objects exhibiting the now-traditional nostalgic and new-style designs of international designers. You can see here the numerous different objects from jewelry to toys that Snyderman and Meyers have added to the collection as they toured the world.
