The R & Company Archives invites you to tour the exhibition Joaquim Tenreiro: Tectonic Master, presenting works from leading mid-century modernist Brazilian designer Joaquim Tenreiro. The exhibition integrates Tenreiro’s furniture with correspondence and original drawings from our holdings. After touring the show, we will present a selection of our Brazilian materials from our archives, including drawings by Joaquim Tenreiro, Sergio Rodrigues, and José Zanine Caldas, alongside a selection of historical periodicals. This will be followed by an informal discussion on the role of the R & Company Archives. Light refreshments will be served.

R & Company is the pre-eminent design gallery in New York City, representing contemporary artists and a wealth of important vintage furniture and design objects. The gallery presents 7-10 exhibitions annually in its Tribeca locations and participates in international design fairs in the United States and abroad.

Within R & Company, we hold an important and extensive non-circulating library and archival collection covering the history of art, design, and architecture from circa 1900 to the present. The general library includes many rare and out-of-print titles with specialties in international design overviews from the mid-twentieth century, period pamphlets, and catalogs. In the archives and special collections, R & Company holds a significant range of materials, such as the estate of Greta Magnusson Grossman, a drawings collection, a vast array of periodicals, photographs, ephemera, an AV media collection, and many other rare resources related to the history of modern design.
