Last summer, Amauri Aguiar and Bryan Young launched the design and interiors gallery Verso in TriBeCa. Now, they’re toasting one year with the first U.S. exhibition from Established & Sons founder Sebastian Wrong’s online platform The Wrong Shop. In another first, FreelingWaters will show their reconceived 18th- and 19th-century pine cabinets, each covered in bespoke combinations of poetry and dazzling geometric patterns, never before seen in America. Erwan Bouroullec offers exclusive wall hangings that mix rural photography and abstract software art, with backings of aluminum foil allowing the textile to crumple. And Richard Woods’ eye-popping posters, boasting high-gloss spot varnish, are The Wrong Shop exclusives.
“Each artist on display represents a compelling shift in contemporary design culture,” Wrong says. These include Nathalie Du Pasquier, Rop van Mierlo, Bethan Laura Wood, Jaime Hayon, and more. “We aim to celebrate this cross-disciplinary approach to art and design, advocating creativity in many media and forms.” Design collectors can see for themselves as “Verso presents The Wrong Shop” runs until Aug. 12.
