New York design studio Coil + Drift’s spring 2018 collection includes translucent hooped lights, simple wooden furniture and ridged walnut mirrors.
Photographed with dancers as part of a series called Unconscious Forms, the range of furniture and lighting includes chairs, tables, mirrors, credenzas and lamps in a variety of materials.
Coil + Drift founder John Sorensen-Jolink, a former dancer himself, designed the items with what he describes as a “unique spacial awareness” that comes with his training and background.
“The outcome is a collection that feels vividly three-dimensional, material forward, and rich with form and texture,” said a statement from the studio.
Items include the Cirrus lighting, created with multiple translucent resin hoops that circle the bulbs and hang from thin chrome arms – available as a double pendant and a chandelier.
Similar rounded shapes are found in the June floor and wall mirrors, with concentric ridges carved into their walnut frames.
A wooden dining table and chair set, named Soren, features straight vertical supports, contrasted by the rounded tabletop and seat back rest.
The dark wood Rex Credenza hides a bronze-mirrored drop-down cabinet, while the Ren side table and Bishop floor lamp complete the series.
Coil + Drift has created a booth entirely different from its installation at Collective for the latest event, taking place at Pier 92 and 94 from 22 to 25 March 2018.
A sage-coloured environment will be used to display the products, as part of the MADE section of the exhibition.
Coil + Drift was founded by dancer-turned-designer John Sorensen-Jolink in 2014, and produces its furniture and lighting in America.
