Another event canceled due to the current pandemic this spring was Sight Unseen Offsite typically held during NYCxDesign every year. The show’s cancellation has led to the launch of Offsite Online, their first-ever digital design fair launching today, May 18th. Just as before, Sight Unseen has curated a collection of furniture and objects by 57 designers and brands that will be presented in a web-based presentation on sightunseen.com. With many set to launch new work for 2020, they were left with no avenue to promote and sell their products, inspiring Sight Unseen to create the digital exhibition.
In addition to the online exhibition, they’ll be producing four weeks of programming content that dives further into each collection showcased. They’ve partnered with 1stdibs as their official sales partner allowing visitors to shop the fair, and Dezeen is welcoming them into their Virtual Design Fair to help reach more people. See below for some of our favorites exhibiting at Offsite Online, and for the entire exhibition visit Sight Unseen.
