Wendell Castle’s iconic works defined a moment in the history of American design. They straddled a line between design and art, and caused people look at furniture in a different way. For Design Days , R 20th Century will present a selection of Castle’s designs from The White Edition; a series of gel-coated and fiberglass-reinforced plastic pieces, including a table with removable and reversible center sections and a shelf in a playful cloud shape (originally designed 1969-1970 with limited editions 2006-2011).

R 20th Century will also have works by the internationally acclaimed 20th Century Brazilian designers Oscar Niemeyer and Joaquim Tenreiro. Niemeyer and Tenreiro’s designs are noted for their unique curves and acute sense of form, scale, detail and craftsmanship, highlighted by the use of rich native materials. Works such as Niemeyer’s ebonized Marquesa bench with cane seat and bent wood (1978) and Tenreiro’s Jacarenda dining table with red laminate and inset glass top (1948) will be presented.
