Offsite online

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!
