Our Offsite Online Fundraiser Lets You Donate to 21 Organizations That Fight Racism and Benefit Black Lives

After silencing our normal editorial activity in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement last week, today we're restarting the remainder of our Offsite Online show. But we’ve been thinking hard about how to do that while respecting a moment that does not feel like business as usual to us, and so today we’re launching an Offsite Online fundraiser to raise money for and awareness of 18 organizations that are fighting racism and/or improving the lives of Black or indigenous people.

Black Lives Matter — A Week of Acknowledgement on Sight Unseen

We stand with BIPOC and call for justice for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others whose deaths are part of a long history of violence against black bodies. Right now, we are reading, listening to, and learning from voices that matter more than ours right now, so we'll be pausing our activities here and on our social media channels all week, June 1-5, to ensure that those voices can be heard.

Frosted Resin Lamps and Denim Daybeds: It’s Part II of Our Offsite Selects

Ever since we began hosting our Sight Unseen Offsite fair, it has always featured both full collection launches as well as a more gallery-like section called Selects, the latter meant to highlight only a piece or two each by a large, diverse group of designers. Now that our physical show has become Offsite Online, we’ve kept the Selects concept in tact, and we’re presenting those individual works in roundups on our main feed over three Saturdays this month. You can view the second group here.

Welcome to Our First Digital Offsite Show! Here’s How — and Why — We Did It.

When our 2020 Offsite fair, scheduled to take place in May at Skylight Modern in Manhattan, was put on indefinite hold, we decided to pivot to a digital exhibition model instead — harnessing the visibility of our existing platform to create a much-needed creative and commercial outlet for the design community, as well as redefining what a fair can be in the digital age. Welcome to Offsite Online.
