A Conceptual Hotel Suite Inspired by Op-Art and ’80s Design

For this year’s Sight Unseen OFFSITE, husband-and-wife Steven Bukowski and Hannah Bigeleisen have teamed up with the support of HotelTonight — the app that offers booking deals on some of the world’s best design and boutique properties — to envision the ideal hotel suite, which they’ve brought to life in a 100-square-foot space inside the show at 201 Mulberry.

The New, Architecturally-Inspired Wallpaper You Need For Your Home

Today marks the launch of Ratio, Twyla’s first-ever, limited-edition line of luxury wallpaper, with the first four patterns curated by Sight Unseen. Aiming to highlight Twyla’s ability to capture minute texture and detail, we asked four of our favorite architectural photographers to lend us a single image, and then invited four artists to create paintings loosely inspired by their use of shadow, color, line, or shape.

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 alongside pretty much everyone we've been scouting in recent months.

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

Conventional wisdom suggests that for an event to be considered truly successful, it's supposed to get bigger every year. But here at Sight Unseen, we've always put curation before commerce, and so when we began pondering back in October whether Sight Unseen OFFSITE might benefit from a tighter, smaller, more elevated edit, we had no qualms whatsoever about scaling down. Whereas in 2016 we hosted more than 70 exhibitors in 20,000 square feet, our 2017 show featured just 25 exhibitors in 13,000 square feet — and yet it was widely credited as being the best we've ever done.

We Paired Norwegian Studios with American Studios to Collaborate on New Works

In 2016, Sight Unseen’s editors created a cross-cultural exchange called Norway x New York, pairing 5 American studios with 5 Norwegian studios, who spent six months working together long-distance on objects that utilize an American workshop for fabrication. After a successful debut at Sight Unseen OFFSITE last year, Norway x New York has returned this week with an all-new collection of collaborative furniture, lighting, and accessories, pictured after the jump.
