Monica Khemsurov and Jill Singer’s annual Noho Design District was one of the more popular events to surround Design Week in NYC. It was a multi location event that featured many independent and up and coming designers. Unfortunately, after four years, Noho Design made its final appearance in 2013. In it’s place Khemsurov and Singer have returned with Sight Unseen OFFSITE, a successor that captures the same spirit as Noho Design District. Instead of having the event in multiple locations, OFFSITE will head south to take over two floors in a historic Soho building. Along with an impressive list of exhibitors, highlights include:

• The launch of a new series of artist-designed tables by New York gallery Grey Area
• A presentation of Tai Ping’s new Chroma Collection of painterly handmade carpets
• Five retail pop-ups, including a ceramics shop curated by Su Wu of the blog I’m Revolting, a papier-mâché plant store by Brooklyn artists Chiaozza, an Enzo Mari furniture workshop by Pablo Alabau, and shops by housewares brand Field and everyday object purveyor Kiosk
• Presentations of new work by more than 20 of the best independent American design talents as chosen by Sight Unseen, including Fredericks & Mae, Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, Knauf & Brown, Eric Trine, The Principals, Rosie Li, DAMM Design, Studio Visibility, and more
• A Sight Unseen x Calico Wallpaper prop-styling photo booth, where visitors can style their own photo shoot using objects from the show

Sight Unseen OFFSITE will take place next week from May 16-20th at 200 Lafayette Street.
