What is Sight Unseen?
Sight Unseen is an online magazine that takes readers inside the worlds of design, art, fashion, and photography. With in-depth, behind-the-scenes reportage, Sight Unseen uncovers the stories, inspirations, and obsessions of some of the most fascinating designers and artists working today. Since its founding in 2009, the site has served as a destination for companies and individuals interested in scouting new talent as well as an inspiration for those working in creative pursuits. In 2014, the editors behind Sight Unseen launched Sight Unseen OFFSITE (née the Noho Design District), a nomadic design fair that runs during NYCxDesign and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair and serves as New York design week’s most exciting platform for new ideas and talents.
Sight Unseen also curates exhibitions and pop-up shops, produces events, and provides editorial and marketing services for a variety of forward-thinking clients. These include The Ace Hotel, Urban Outfitters, the Standard East Village, Karlssons Gold Vodka, Creatures of Comfort, Lincoln, Etienne Aigner, and Shinola. Please contact us if you’d like to add your company to our growing list.
