Virginia Sin, the woman behind SIN, is a Brooklyn-based multi-disciplinary designer. In 2006, she left LA for Brooklyn, abandoning, “way better tacos” in the name of making a name for herself. With her collections of overalls, small rocks and medium-sized succulents in tow, she set up a studio in Greenpoint and developed her first line: The Gluttony Collection.
By 2007, the collection had attracted the attention of Design Within Reach and received “Most Sustainable” in the Modern+Design+Function Competition. Nine years later, in 2016, it was acquired by The New York Historical Society Museum, where it became part of their 20th and 21st century objects collection.
Her porcelain paper plates are used at Eleven Madison Park to serve the restaurant’s picnic prix fixe. This and more of Virginia’s work has been featured in Architectural Digest, The Today Show, Goop, Domino, NYT and more.
Working to continually broaden her design horizons, Virginia has focused her recent attention on redefining ceramic coils, translating her graphic designs into weave structures and challenging the limitations of clay in the lighting industry, in hopes to bring some extra warmth into the world.
