Sight Unseen OFFSITE opened today, May 19, as part of NYCxDesign month. Here are some of our favorite booths to check out (and designers to watch) at the 4-day showcase.
For the next three days, the ground floor of 100 Avenue of the Americas is home to a hyper-curated list of trending designers. This season’s palette is filled with creamy pinks, mint greens, soft blues, resin homewares, and of course, brass and gold fixtures.
Here are the must-see designs at Sight Unseen Offsite 2017:
Twyla, a company that specializes in museum-quality limited edition prints, included virtual reality as part of the exhibition. The immersive experience, created by artist Tom Hancocks, features each of the seven prints in a unique interior, and offers a new take on how art can be showcased in the home.
Elyse Graham’s resin vessels were, perhaps, the artistic highlight of the show. Made from hand-carved, pigmented resin, each vessel radiates a gem-like appearance and pops out from the surrounding décor. The rich color scheme of each vessel feels unique, authentic, and sophisticated.
Pieces was another ‘win’ on the scene, with their creamy pink and peach seasonal palette and mixed-material dining series.
Grain, a Washington State-based design company, featured a modernist reinterpretation of the classic room divider/screen made from blue-colored brass and ash wood.
Iacoli & McAllister, a Seattle-based design studio, featured a new lighting collection made from colored glass (pink and black) set within intricately woven chrome designs.
