Sagmeister & Walsh got robbed
Award-winning designer Stefan Sagmeister and his partner Jessica Walsh have been victims of a robbery in their New York City studio. Exact details have not yet been revealed, but they calculate that the value of their loss is substantial. The studio camera, which streams live footage of the studio to their website, has been restored after being switched off for security purposes. The robbery was caught on the camera and police have released a sequence of still images to aid in the identification of the suspects.
The act took place on 206 W 23rd Street, where at approximately 4:36 a.m. a group of 3 men stormed into the 4th floor studio to steal the work of Sagmeister & Walsh.
Stefan Sagmeister, one of the most recognized designers in the world and author of various books, established his studio in 1993 in NYC; since then, he hasn't stopped innovating and surprising the world with his work. His website is a clear example of this, including the decision to use a live camera feed as his home page so web surfers could access a real-time view of what is happening in the studio.
"We never thought something like this could happen. When we launched our website we thought it would be a good way to showcase our work to those who admire us; now it's all gone."
