Geoffrey Diner Gallery was established by Geoffrey and Maureen Diner in 1975 in the historic Dupont Circle area of Washington, D.C. This vital neighborhood boasts some of the city’s finest museums and historic houses together with the largest concentration of art galleries. Despite the rich cultural offerings that surround the gallery, Diner remains the premier source or high-end and limited-edition design in D.C. Diner initially earned his excellent reputation as a dealer of important prewar decorative arts, such as Tiffany lamps, but in the last decade, he has evolved his gallery’s program to encompass an eclectic mix of postwar and contemporary works by artists and designers such as Scott Burton, George Nakashima, Maurice Calka, Poul Kjaerholm, and others. Diner’s Nakashima collection is especially impressive. Artists, designers, and architects represented include: Scott Burton, Pierre Chareau, Olivio Ferrari, Jiri Kubelka, Howard Meister, Forrest Meyers, George Nakashima, Maria Pergay, Rony Plesl, Mats Theselius.
