New York Design Week, Did You Miss Us? We’re Back, With a Show of Work by 23 Designers

Predictably, the question we always get around this time of year is: Are you bringing back Offsite?! Alas, our much-loved New York design week show, which ran in some form or another from 2010-2020, is on indefinite hiatus. But this year we’ll be bringing a piece of its spirit back to life: From May 18-24, Sight Unseen will host an exhibition featuring the newest additions to the Sight Unseen Collection, which comprises furniture, lighting, and objects from a stable of emerging and mid-career designers from around the world, all orderable directly through Sight Unseen. The exhibition — taking place at Voltz Clarke gallery on the Lower East Side — will feature new work by 23 designers and studios, displayed alongside the paintings of France-based artist Heather Chontos.

This exhibition represents the first time that we’ll be formally presenting our Collection to the public, having expanded into sales in 2018. Highlights of the show will include the launch of the first furniture collection by Brooklyn ceramicist Danny Kaplan, the New York debut of LA designer Ben Willett, selections from the debut collection of New York duo Alexis & Ginger, and the launch of three new pieces by New York’s Mock Studio. We’re also extremely excited for pieces like a birdseye maple chair by JUMBO, an aluminum floor lamp by Lesser Miracle, a resin bench by Ian Alistair Cochran, a firepit by Muhly, new acrylic nightstands by Sohyun Yun, and chairs by Nifemi Ogunro, Aleiya Olu, Cultivation Objects, and more. The full participant list is as follows. Full hours and info are here, and shop the collection (with more coming soon) here!
