JOIN

Founded in Seattle in 2008 as a means of giving the local design community a bigger and more united voice, JOIN has since expanded to the Pacific Northwest and beyond to include independent designers and studios from across the United States.
Part art, part craft, part mentorship, part collaboration, part like-minded ethos—JOIN is a collective of 40+ curated designer-makers that combine creative forces and energy for various events, pop-ups and tradeshows.
At Sight Unseen OFFSITE, JOIN will present the group show REFLECT, showcasing a curated selection of 16 objects from independent designers and studios across the United States. Accepted designers will debut one-of-a-kind objects within the theme of REFLECT, each made from a single material. A grid arrangement of column-like pedestals will give each object its sense of place, while the grid as a whole will create a dramatic sum of these parts. In conjunction with display, JOIN will produce a limited-edition photographic catalog that will exhibit how and why each object was created and the designers behind them.
