Coil + Drift's furniture and lighting is designed from a dancer's perspective

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.

The collection was unveiled at New York's Collective Design fair earlier this month, and will also be on show at this week's Architectural Digest Design Show (ADDS) in the city.

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.
