Take a Tour of Our 2017 Sight Unseen OFFSITE Show, Part II

With our main show this year focusing on larger, more cohesive collection presentations, we knew we had to find somewhere to feature work from the more emerging designers we’re known for launching. Enter OFFSITE Selects, a curated group exhibition of 25 international designers, featuring a few longtime favorites (Andrew O. Hughes, Ladies & Gentlemen, DAMM, Pat Kim) alongside pretty much everyone we’ve been scouting in recent months, from Eindhoven’s Jeroen van de Gruiter to Mexico City’s Jorge Diego Etienne to Brooklyn’s Kin & Company. We chose just one to three pieces from each designer, and turned to up-and-coming talent Asa Pingree to bring the whole thing together with a beautiful exhibition design, made from maple wood strips and painted panels of MDF in the perfect palette. Take a tour of the exhibition with us below.


Pingree used different colors to delineate space for each exhibitor, which coordinated perfectly with the exuberant color of the designs themselves. Shown here, clockwise from top left, are the Just Can’t Valet by Another Human, Beetle acoustic panel by MUT Design x Sancal, Portal bookends by Andrew O. Hughes, Dichroic Edge Volume Mirrors by Robert Sukrachand, Ridge Stools by Trey Jones Studio, and Lu Lamp by Lera Moiseeva and Alissa Coe.

We’ve had our eye on Milan-based designer Federica Elmo since last Salone, so we were happy to host her squiggly Onda tables and Ferrosecco vases at this year’s show.


Joseph Vadich and Kira de Paola of Kin & Company debuted their brand-new Crescent table in marble and oxidized steel.


Lera Moiseeva and Alissa Coe launched Lu, a porcelain table lamp that marries their backgrounds in furniture and ceramics, respectively.


Washington D.C.’s Trey Jones Studio launched three stackable ash-wood and cork Ridge stools.SELECTS_Exhib_AndrewHughesAndrew O. Hughes devised these stunning Portal glass bookends in the weeks before the show.

One of the biggest hits of the exhibition were these abstract Kulfi rugs by Tantuvi, debuting their first non-geometric flat-weave.
