FOUNDED BY NATIVE ANGELENOS, INTERIOR DESIGNER OLIVER M. FURTH AND CREATIVE CONSULTANT SEAN YASHAR, FURTH YASHAR & IS A UNIQUE ROVING GALLERY CONCEPT FOR LOS ANGELES, PROPOSING TO COLLAPSE AND EXPAND THE HIERARCHY THAT SEPARATES ART AND DESIGN, FUNCTIONAL AND NONFUNCTIONAL, AND SERVING AS A CATALYST TO END THE SCULPTURE/OBJECT DIVIDE.

CREATED BY THE MULTIDISCIPLINARY DESIGN COUPLE WHO, OVER THE LAST DECADE, HAS CHAMPIONED TALENT AND PUSHED THE L.A. DESIGN DIALOGUE FORWARD, FURTH YASHAR & RUNS IN ADDITION TO THEIR RESPECTIVE BUSINESSES AS A PLATFORM FOR SHOWCASING DESIGNERS AND ARTISTS WHO CREATE WORKS THAT ELUDE CATEGORIZATION. IN THESE WORKS, UTILITY IS NOT VIEWED AS A CONCESSION TO THE COMMERCIAL, BUT AS A MEANINGFUL COMPONENT OF IDENTITY, IMPLICITLY MAKING THE ARGUMENT THAT DESIGN IS THE NEW SCULPTURE.

WITH A FOCUS ON HIGHLIGHTING ARTISTS, DESIGNERS AND MAKERS THROUGH SOLO SHOWS—AS WELL AS GROUP SHOWS ILLUSTRATING CURRENT DIALOGUES—FURTH YASHAR & SERVES AS A FLEXIBLE "SPACE" TO RECEIVE CONTEMPORARY DESIGN TALENT WHO CURRENTLY DO NOT HAVE A VENUE FOR SPECIAL EXHIBITIONS IN L.A.
