Camouflage at Sight Unseen OFFSITE
Organized by New York’s arbiters of cool in contemporary design, this year’s Sight Unseen OFFSITE show has again expanded to pop-ups at fashionable partner venues throughout the city, from Opening Ceremony (featuring new work in violet by Harry Nuriev of Crosby Studios) to Creatures of Comfort (a selection of colorful chairs by Studio Say/So). But perhaps the most ambitious installation is the conceptual hotel suite designed (down to a minibar) by Steven Bukowski and Hannah Bigeleisen, complete with furniture that can be bought (um… booked?) through the HotelTonight app.
Sight Unseen OFFSITE ran through Sunday, May 20 at 201 Mulberry St. (and various partner locations) in New York
LOBBY at the Coming Soon PLYROOM
For their partnership with Sight Unseen OFFSITE, Lower East Side design store Coming Soon opened up its basement PLYROOM for an installation that transforms the space into a lobby, with lounges by Tom Hancocks for Australian brand Dowel Jones and a VR experience.
LOBBY ran through Sunday, May 20 at Coming Soon PLYROOM, at 37 Orchard Street, New York.
Dim Sum x ANTHOM with PIECES by An Aesthetic Pursuit
Pulling elements from their own furniture line, Pieces Home, Jenny Kaplan of Brooklyn creative studio An Aesthetic Pursuit created a pop-up installation at Soho’s ANTHOM in collaboration with the loungewear brand Dim Sum. The colorful, corrugated designs will be on display at the “gallery store” through the end of the month.
Dim Sum x ANTHOM with PIECES by An Aesthetic Pursuit runs through May 31 at 25 Mercer St. in New York.
