Radnor is pleased to announce “Material Interiors,” an exhibition taking place during New York Design Month that will launch the inaugural Radnor Made collection and introduce new works by Radnor represented designers.
For the duration of May and June 2018, Radnor will transform a two bedroom residence in David Chipperfield Architects’ The Bryant. Situated in the heart of Manhattan, The Bryant is the first residential condominium built on Bryant Park, one of the city’s most iconic green spaces. Radnor is thrilled to host their inaugural Radnor Made exhibition in this new landmark building. The exhibition will be co-curated by design studio Workstead, selected by Radnor for their renowned ability to work contextually, balancing the functional and the iconic to express a materiality that is grounded in place. For this site-specific installation, Radnor and Workstead collaborated to create a fully functional interior that responds to the existing details of The Bryant, most notably the distinctive herringbone oak floors, honed terrazzo borders and wall cladding.
“Material Interiors” will launch a collection of exclusive Radnor Made textiles and furniture designed in collaboration with Bunn Studio and Adam Rogers. It will also introduce the work of Julianne Ahn, Marie Eklund, Oyyo and Workstead, and present pieces by Loic Bard, Egg Collective, Pat Kim, PELLE, and Farrah Sit. Bringing together a selection of works that conjoin design and craftsmanship, the exhibition is defined by the use of natural materials and intuitive forms. The result is a space filled with depth and texture that is at once highly refined and profoundly livable.
“Material Interiors” is part of an ongoing series of events presented by Radnor that transform the traditional retail experience through the creation of distinctive seasonal installations.
Radnor would like to extend a special thank you to HFZ Capitol Group, Brick & Wonder, Anne Huntington, BDDW, Maharam, Soto, Casper, Worlds End, Tula House, Fox Fodder Farm, and Hart as well as to Workstead and all of the designers for contributing so much more than the works themselves.
