Curves: A plush oasis awaited FOG-goers with biomorphic surfaces and subdued tones, spanning mid-century to contemporary. “At this year’s fair we wanted to focus on furniture designer Pierre Yovanovitch and sculptor Rogan Gregory,” says Evan Snyderman of New York’s R & Company. “We wanted to create an environmental installation and really welcome people into the booth.”

Everything was commissioned for this booth.”
