A brand-new resident has settled in The Bryant, a luxury condominium by David Chipperfield Architects that overlooks Manhattan’s Bryant Park. Radnor founder Susan Clark has transformed a two-bedroom residence into “Material Interiors,” an exhibition that launches three collections of exclusive Radnor Made textiles and furniture designed in collaboration with Bunn Studio and Adam Rogers. Radnor tapped Workstead—a multidisciplinary studio led by Robert Highsmith, Ryan Mahoney, and Nadine Lynch—to co-curate the exhibition, a fully functional apartment. The new collections sit atop original herringbone oak floors and honed terrazzo borders, along with works by some of the industry’s brightest budding talents: Julianne Ahn, Marie Eklund, Oyyo, Workstead, Loïc Bard, Egg Collective, Pat Kim, Pelle, and Farrah Sit, all designers Radnor represents.
But “Material Interiors” is about more than showcasing new pieces—it’s also a venue for Clark to celebrate the creative community while carving her own niche in the retail landscape. Clark plans to launch Radnor collections through seasonal installations, each “presenting a puzzle of what Radnor needs to add to the collection,” she explains. “I want to always be surrounded by different perspectives, aesthetics, and thought processes—these variations in viewpoint push us to think beyond ourselves and generate even better work.”
“Material Interiors” displays through the end of June at 16 West 40th Street in New York.
