Vincenzo De Cotiis
Vincenzo De Cotiis was born in 1958 in Gonzaga, Italy. He studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and founded his studio in 1997.
Considered a pioneer of the international collectible design scene, De Cotiis creates one-of-a-kind and limited-edition projects by hand in his atelier. His interests in the passage of time and historical memory inflect pieces that combine luxurious materials with salvaged fiberglass, stone, and wood. His commitment to Italian craftsmanship has been compared to that of Carlo Scarpa and Gio Ponti.
In 2019 Vincenzo De Cotiis’s work was presented at the Museo Franz Mayer, Mexico City and at the Ca’d’Oro on the occasion of the Venice Biennale.
