Mondo Cane presenting RO/LU

Mondo Cane was founded in 1994 and since then has been a regular exhibitor at events in New York, Miami and Palm Springs and Los Angeles.In September 2000 Mondo Cane opened its first shop in Chelsea. By 2004 Mondo Cane had outgrown its Chelsea location and decided to move the gallery to 174 Duane Street in Tribeca.

Working with architect William Massie, Mondo Cane was able to create an interesting environment to display their particular vision of the period 1880 to the present. Major designers, architects and artists are represented along with what might be Mondo Cane’s strongest point—lesser known and anonymous artisans and designers.

The shop’s inventory and design lean toward the unusual and unpredictable.
