A Tour of the Sight Unseen OFFSITE 2014 Show: Part II

Though your Sight Unseen editors have been in major curation mode for the past two weeks, we’ve also had day to day work to do as, you know, journalists. So for five days during our Sight Unseen OFFSITE event last week, Monica and I set up camp on the Astroturf-covered bleachers of the MOLD Future Food Café, where we caught up on emails and posted stories to this very site. It was the perfect vantage point from which to view our own event: We could see friends and VIPs on their way in, and we could overhear people heading to the elevator, on their way up to the second floor. The most common refrain we heard? “Oh my God, there’s more upstairs?”

So much more — the second floor of Sight Unseen OFFSITE played host to no fewer than 36 independent designers (and one dog named Loopy), who hailed from places as far as Mälmo, Sweden, and as near as Red Hook, Brooklyn. Each designer was hand-picked by us, but we never dreamed when we began curating it exactly how vast the range of work on show would be.

See Part 1 of our Sight Unseen OFFSITE recap here, and stay tuned for more Design Week coverage coming this week. Thank you again to our graphic designers Kokoro & Moi and our PR team at Camron, and special thanks to our partners — General Growth Properties, Rockwell Group, Q+Q, Waggener Edstrom, and Interiors From Spain — without whom none of this would have been possible in the first place.
