COS is a brand for women and men who like modern, functional and considered design. Using traditional methods and new techniques to form understated collections made to last beyond the season. Committed to both timeless design and innovation, they have supported the arts since the launch of the brand through collaborations with established and emerging artists, galleries and creative studios.
Previous collaborations include: Agnes Martin at the Guggenheim, New York, 2016; Michael Sailstorfer, Berlin, 2015; Market Art Fair, Stockholm, 2016; Palais de Tokyo, Paris, 2014; The Serpentine, London, 2013-17; The Judd Foundation, New York, 2015; André Fu and studio AFSO, Hong Kong, 2015; and Studio Swine, Salone del Mobile, Milan, 2017.
For one of their most recent projects, COS have partnered with New York-based art and architecture studio Snarkitecture to create an installation composed of glass marbles and housed in the Gana Art Center, Seoul, open from November 8th to 19th. Loop is a conceptual, interactive experience based on the childhood memory of marbles games, and inspired by the movement of the COS AW17 collection, constructed as a sequence of four unique sloped tracks which create a complex intertwined path.
Also, this December, COS x Studio Swine’s blossoming sculpture will head to Miami Beach during Design Miami/ and be the first stop for the installation following its celebrated debut during Salone del Mobile in Milan. New Spring, Miami, will be an official Satellite of the design fair and be reconceived to a greater scale in a historic, light-filled art deco building.
