NYCxDesign 2015: Sight Unseen OFFSITE

Sight Unseen brought back their NYCxDesign Week exhibition for its second year in its new Hudson Mercantile location. Sight Unseen OFFSITE brings together about 100 brands, designers, and studios into one convenient location where they showcase everything from furniture, lighting, jewelry, art—you name it. Take a look at some of our favorites!


Brooklyn-based BOWER knows their way around visual illusions and their latest Line Mirrors continue that tradition in bold, new ways.


Dusen Dusen Home and Eric Trine shared a booth and the match was quite perfect. Dusen Dusen’s geometric textiles and Trine’s geometric tables and chairs colorfully complement each other in holy matrimony.


Ladies & Gentlemen Studio continue to kill it and we fell in love with their new lighting that has textured and iridescent glass in various shapes.


We recently featured Lambert et Fils’s new lighting and they unveiled even more at the show. The Clark table lamp is made from a marble block base and cut and bent sheet brass that becomes the structure and shade. It was then finished in a beautiful, peachy ombre.


Greg Papove, of Studio Medium, reimagined incense burners for the modern design set. Doing away with the stereotypical burners on the market, Papove designed a sculptural one that doesn’t scream “hippie”.


Brooklyn-based Chiaozza displayed a refreshingly bright collection of geometric wooden sculptures that merge art and design.


Object & Totem is a Brooklyn-based ceramic studio that creates experimental art objects and sculptural, one-of-a-kind vases.


Toronto-based Mercury Bureau displayed a series of sculptural lighting, including this pendant made of curved, opaque glass and a brass rod.


LUUR had a mesmerizing collection of trivets each with a moiré pattern created by two patterns that overlapped.


Seattle-based BLK PINE WORKSHOP’s booth featured an array of simple furniture made from wood and cotton canvas. Each piece is created from kit of parts that are easily flat-packed for shipping.

Caroline Williamson is Editor-in-Chief of Design Milk. She has a BFA in photography from SCAD and can usually be found searching for vintage wares, doing New York Times crossword puzzles in pen, or reworking playlists on Spotify.
