Sight Unseen: Saturday Select, Week of September 20, 2021

A weekly Saturday recap to share with you our favorite links, discoveries, exhibitions, and more from the past seven days. This week: tables inspired by California’s kidney-shaped pools, Gustaf Westman’s latest furniture drop, and a colorful installation by Germans Ermics at last week’s Design Miami Basel show.

When we first saw these works by British artist Paul Hosking, on view now at Nathalie Karg gallery, we assumed they were colored mirrors overlaid with actual painted chain-link fence segments, but they’re more complex than that — both elements are actually just meticulously cut painted mirror inlaid into aluminum panels, creating visual uncertainty over “the exact border between us and the image beyond.”
