About Sight Unseen
Sight Unseen is an online magazine that uncovers what’s new and next in design and the visual arts. Since its founding in 2009, the site has served as a key source for scouting new design talents as well as an inspiration for those working in creative pursuits. In 2014, the editors behind Sight Unseen launched Sight Unseen OFFSITE, a showcase of contemporary furniture and lighting design that takes place during New York design week. Sight Unseen's 1stdibs store features a selection of the best work from both its editorial site and its annual OFFSITE show.
