COS works with Paul Cocksedge
COS is working with Paul Cocksedge on a site-specific work and inaugural installation for its Coal Drops Yard store at King’s Cross, London, the first hybrid retail space to celebrate the brand’s interest in art and design.
The light-based work is called Orbitsand features a series of six natural rocks collected by Cocksedge, suspended from malleable hoops of light, fabricated in stainless steel and LED. Each pendant exhibits a different relationship with gravity, with the light manipulated by the weight of the rock beneath.
The 577sqm store in the Thomas Heatherwick building aims to act as a multifunctional platform, hosting work by established and emerging artists, while integrating independent publishing houses, wellbeing and lifestyle brands alongside handpicked edits from the COS collection.
