ABOUT US

Hamel20, LLC is a firm devoted to acquiring and selling modern design objects and fine art of the twentieth century.  Founded in 2015 by Bill Hamel, the firm’s inventory spans the twentieth century from arts and crafts, art deco, machine age, modernism, mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Italian and Austrian design, to more recent classics by Robert Venturi, Richard Meier, Lino Sabattini, Lella and Massimo Vignelli, Ettore Sottsass, Shiro Kuramata and many many others.  Designs that were considered avant-garde in their time are our core mission.

Bill brings to this business over 50 years of living with great modern design and nearly 30 years of seriously collecting it.  He grew up with parents who furnished their home with designs by Hans Wegner, Bruno Mathsson, Borge Mogensen, Arne Jacobsen, George Nakashima, Gino Sarfatti and others.  His parents also collected and filled their home with quality 18th and 19th century American antiques and fine art.  From an early age Bill was dragged to antique stores and shows, but enjoyed engaging with and learning from knowledgeable dealers.  Bill has studied and handled many thousands of objects, which has focused his eye and helped develop a keen sense of good design, line, and construction, as well as value and good investment.

We hope you enjoy the website and the types of objects and art we offer for sale.  The website will always have a nice selection, but represents only a small fraction of our inventory.  Please feel free to contact us with questions about the objects on display or are interested in making an offer.  Inquiries about particular objects or designers you are searching for are also welcome as we continually acquire great things.  

If you plan to visit the scenic and historic Hudson Valley north of New York City come visit our display in case #7 at the Kingston Consignments and Antiques center at 66 North Front Street in Kingston, New York.  We also exhibit at the Rhinebeck Antiques Show in May and October of each year in Rhinebeck, New York and save some our most special pieces for these two shows.
