Pieces From The Coolest American Contemporary Designers Could Be Yours

Sally Tabart
8th January, 2019

Sight Unseen announces its 2018 American Hot List… and it’s shoppable for the very first time!

Sight Unseen is one of the coolest art and design resources on the internet. Founded by two former editors of i-D Magazine, the American website covers the most exciting contemporary designers across the globe.

Yesterday, Sight Unseen announced the 2018 honorees for their annual American Design Hot List! The ‘unapologetically subjective’ selection of 20 designers are the names-to-know who have had a significant impact on the design landscape – the ones whose innovative ideas have helped shape and influence an aesthetic that’s so hot right now.

This year, Sight Unseen has teamed up with luxury fashion retailer Moda Operandi to make the Hot List shoppable for the very first time. Moda Operandi allows customers to shop directly from designers’ complete runway collections prior to production, and this collaboration with Sight Unseen launches their foray into the home decor sector with the same concept. Shopping carts at the ready, people!
