Earlier this month DECASO hosted an exclusive showing of Oops, Parisian designer Pierre Yovanovitch’s masterfully curated exhibit currently on display at R and Company’s Tribeca gallery. R and Company founders, Evan Synderman and Zesty Meyers, hold a guest-curated show annually, and chose Pierre Yovanovitch—a personal friend—for this year’s on account of his exemplary craftsmanship and eye for eclecticism.
To celebrate DECASO’s recent collaboration with The Harry Bertoia Foundation, a breakfast honoring the Harry Bertoia Director and founder, Celia Bertoia, was held at Haven’s Kitchen in New York City. Celia, who is also the youngest daughter of Harry Bertoia, founded the Bertoia Foundation in 2013, and since then, has worked to promote her father’s legacy through lectures, interviews, and numerous other projects, including the reissue of several of his keystone works.
In Robert Kuo’s world, alabaster pears stand five feet tall, bronze chairs mimic cumulus clouds, and repoussé snails rivaling the size of the family dog sunbathe on the lawn… If it all sounds like the wondrous world of Dr. Seuss to you, we understand—but thanks to the compelling artistry and craftsmanship of Robert Kuo and his team of artisans, these amazing creatures don’t just live in a fantasy land.
