NEW YORK – Coil + Drift is pleased to announce the opening of their temporary showroom during NYCxDesign and the launch of their latest collection, Assemblage. The street-level showroom, open May 15 – 19, will feature the full Assemblage collection, which is composed entirely of lighting, as well as furniture pieces from Coil + Drift’s existing collection, many shown in new finishes. The space is located in Manhattan’s Bowery neighborhood at 2 Rivington Street and is inspired by the lighting shops that once lined the area’s streets.
ASSEMBLAGE After purchasing and renovating his first home last Spring, Coil + Drift designer John Sorensen-Jolink decided to create custom lighting for the pre-war apartment focusing on the specific needs of the loft-like space and its inhabitants. The result was a series of lighting that felt especially personal to Sorensen-Jolink, so he decided to expand the designs into a full collection and Assemblage was born. The collection includes the Yama table lamp, with a cylindrical tarnished-brass base and a shallow cone-shaped cloth shade. Also included is Toam, a series of lights featuring a chrome and walnut exaggerated stem with matte bulbs at the end; available as a sconce, pendant, and flush mount. The Pierce light, available as a chandelier, sconce, and pendant, is comprised of robust sand- blasted glass orbs with brass stems pierced all the way through them.
ABOUT COIL + DRIFT Based in New York City, Coil + Drift is the design studio of acclaimed modern dancer and self-taught designer John Sorensen-Jolink. The studio creates luxurious American-made lighting and furniture using brass, marble, resin, and wood, that is designed using the unique spacial awareness of a dancer and choreographer. The outcome is a collection that feels vividly three-dimensional, material forward, and rich with form and texture. Founded in 2014, Coil + Drift won the coveted ICFF Editors’ Award for Best New Designer in 2016. They are on Sight Unseen’s 2018 American Design Hot List.
COIL + DRIFT x 13 BONAPARTE To mark the launch of Assemblage, Coil + Drift has collaborated with French brand 13 Bonaparte to create a mirrored container to house their Bougie Parfumée. The container is made of hand-cut pieces of one-way mirror and will be available for purchase as a limited-edition set with the candle at 13 Bonaparte’s Manhattan store, which is conveniently located across the street from the Coil + Drift showroom at 2 Rivington Street. Together, Coil + Drift and 13 Bonaparte will host a fête to celebrate the new collection and collaboration on May 14 (RSVP essential).
