New York-based design magazine Sight Unseen has recruited a string of famous faces — including actors Seth Rogen and Jason Schwartzman and stylist Mel Ottenberg — and partnered them with 13 designers to create a furniture capsule. The Field Studies exhibition, which is currently on display in New York, includes everything from practical furniture such as chairs and mirrors to statement pieces including a piano and a glass cake stand.
The stand-out pieces in the collection include the multicolored beach ball-style mirror made by Seth Rogen and Brooklyn design studio Bower, as well as Schwartzman’s pastel-colored pianet made with LA’s Wall for Apricots and possibly a nod to the actor’s work with Wes Anderson. Elsewhere, Ottenberg has produced a capsule of three quilts with architect Rafael de Cárdenas, Angel Olsen teamed up with Drew Seskunas from The Principals on a series of aluminium candle-stick holders and blogger Aimee Song has created an eye-catching hairy ottoman stool. The proceeds from the collection will go to charities chosen by each partnership.
