Summary

The furniture and interiors of Milanese designer Vincenzo De Cotiis reflect the legacy of Italian minimalism behind his elegant appropriation of salvaged materials.

"De Cotiis feels free, even compelled, to explore the ambient tension between crumbling antiquity and futuristic minimalism." --T Magazine

The first book on the work of Milanese architect and artist Vincenzo De Cotiis is a celebration of refined aesthetics. Incorporating salvaged materials into his tables, chairs, lighting fixtures, cabinets, and screens, De Cotiis's world appears ageless and graceful. The Milanese designer developed a reputation for stripping domestic spaces and hotel projects back to their Art Nouveau, Napoleonic, or even ancient frames, letting the natural wear of a building's interior breathe history through inhabited space.

As a designer, he is preoccupied with the weathering effect of time. His objects marry patinated and uneven finishes in compositions that incorporate traditional Italian craftsmanship and materials including Murano glass. Both his renowned interior architecture and his furniture works reflect the influence of the artist's forefathers, Gio Ponti and Carlo Scarpa.
