Taken from the cricketing term ‘drift’ and inspired by the dancing forms of driftwood as it glides through the water, the Drifter light is hand-carved in oak by traditional British cricket bat makers.
The elongated, linear pendant is set with striking brass and saddle leather details with whole LED strips discreetly embedded within the piece. The graceful silhouettes of the Drifter pieces and the invariably careful consideration of the way light is cast from them is a result of intense research and a rigorous creative process. As each piece of wood has its own integrity, so too does each Drifter light. Casting a warm glow, the drifters are ideal to have above bars, kitchen islands and dining tables.
The Drifter has been over a year in development with the idea initially arising when Harriet Maxwell Macdonald bought a cricket bat for her son. She spotted the workshop behind the storefront and was inspired by the craftsmanship, seeing first-hand the willow clefts being pressed and stripped back. After a conversation with the maker, Ochre decided to add its unique spin to the process and used untreated oak to create a prototype of the Drifter.
This drive of reinterpreting age-old crafts with a contemporary sensibility is synonymous with Ochre with their aim of creating multifunctional pieces that enhance lives. Each Drifter piece is made to order, ensuring impeccable standards of manufacture, but simultaneously each light is entirely unique and can be customised according to the space.
