Site Specific: LA at Austere, 2015
In the winter of 2015, Sight Unseen was invited by the downtown Los Angeles design shop Austere to curate Site Specific LA, a three-month selling exhibition of new furniture and products by established and up-and-coming LA-based independent design studios. The designers on view included AQQ Design, B.Zippy & Co., Ben Medansky, Brendan Ravenhill, Eric Trine, Jonathan Zawada, Michael Felix, Only Love is Real, Ouli, Tanya Aguiniga and Waka Waka. The exhibition also included a brand new collaboration between Trine and Medansky created exclusively for Site Specific LA. A packed opening party brought in exactly the kind of tastemakers Austere owner Fredrik Carlstrom was seeking an introduction to.
