Designing Women II: Masters, Mavericks, & Mavens

Designing Women II: Masters, Mavericks, & Mavens

10 May - 1 June ‘18

R & Company is excited to partner with Egg Collective for Designing Women II: Masters, Mavericks, & Mavens. Curated by Egg Collective and Kinder Modern, the empowering exhibition unites historical and contemporary female designers, including R & Company designers Greta Magnusson Grossman, Nicola L, and Katie Stout. Open May 10 – June 1 at 304 Hudson Street No. 307.

Conceived of as a conversation across both time and space, the second iteration of the show builds upon the critical acclaim of 2017's inaugural show. This year's exhibiton features an international roster of work from both contemporary and historical female voices. Co-curated with Lora Appleton, the founder of kinderMODERN and The Female Design Council, the selected works are intended to foster a conversation about how women have achieved success, blazed trails, and furthered their craft over time.

Egg Collective is a New York-based design company established in 2011 by three female designers—Stephanie Beamer, Crystal Ellis, and Hillary Petrie. Pulling from its founders’ backgrounds in architecture, art, and woodworking, the company creates items that are intended to stand the test of time. All of Egg Collective’s work is made in its own woodshop and in collaboration with a community of small-scale fabricators.

In addition to its commitment to high-quality craftsmanship, Egg Collective’s work is united by an underlying attention to detail, surface, and form. The company’s sculptural work focuses on the combination of natural materials —wood, leather, stone, metal—with pure, elemental forms.

Believing that beauty has value, and that objects should age gracefully, the company often chooses materials that will acquire a patina with use. All of Egg Collective’s finishes are hand applied, and some of its metals are unsealed. These “live” metal finishes are intended to change over time, picking up traces of the environment, and people, around them. Oxygen, water, oils, and fingerprints are recorded in the surface, making each piece unique over time.

Egg Collective also represents a small selection of artists, displaying their work alongside its own designs. The company maintains a wood shop in Brooklyn and a showroom in Manhattan.
