Welcome to Offsite Online, a virtual exhibition featuring new work by nearly 100 designers, brands, and students. The pandemic may have prevented us from holding a physical Offsite this spring, but moving the show online has allowed us to help unite the design community and give it a much-needed creative and commercial outlet. View Offsite in its entirety here — including links to purchase many of the pieces on 1stdibs — but make sure to also follow along on our main feed and Instagram for more in-depth content over the coming weeks. Note that the show includes some 3-D renderings by digital artists like Stefano Giacomello, Charlotte Taylor, Victor Roussel, and Andres Reisinger, but every piece exists — or will soon — as a real object that you can specify. We hope you enjoy the fair!
For his Hone collection, Coil + Drift’s John Sorensen-Jolink decided to dig into his archives and reinterpret existing designs — some in production, and others that had never seen the light of day.
Seer Studio founder Scott Martin — who’s launching his collection widely for the first time with Offsite — was a touring musician and a cater-waiter before finding his true calling in design.
Supaform’s Fancy-Routine collection is its first to trade loud colors for a natural rusted metal palette, and yet the Russian studio’s signature style is still evident in the work’s Brutalism-meets-the-’80s influence.
After attending an airshow in Toronto, and seeing planes leave looping trails behind them in the sky, Objects & Ideas had the idea to create a furniture series made up of one continuous curving line.
The latest versions of Studio Mignone’s Tavolo Morbido, which is inspired in part by Gae Aulenti’s Jumbo table, include one with an ombre color fade and one with legs in mismatched shades of white.
For his thesis project at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Trevor Carreon created a Brutalist-style end table and planter using his own take on Hempcrete, a carbon-neutral alternative to concrete.
New York designer Kalen Kaminski was inspired to create her new Cuesta series by the color-field paintings of Helen Frankenthaler. Kaminski painted the vase and pitcher on canvas, and glassblower Grace Whiteside brought the pieces to life.
