Vincenzo de Cotiis: Interiors
Milan-based architect and artist Vincenzo De Cotiis’ frequent appearances on Architectural Digest’s AD100 lists attest to his studio’s international renown. Originally known for interiors in which he strips centuries-old architecture of any later embellishments, creating a conversation between historic settings and his emphatically contemporary design, De Cotiis has since developed a vocabulary of rare stones and polished metals to create striking minimalist interiors for the world’s tastemakers. Following in the footsteps of Italian maestros like Gio Ponti and Carlo Scarpa, De Cotiis works at the nexus of architecture, interiors, and furniture design, prizing top-level craftsmanship above all else. His creations are born out of an assembly of recovered materials and reflective, futuristic surfaces.
Images by photographer Martin Morrell highlight the quiet luxury of nine of De Cotiis’s meditative spaces. An additional section includes earlier projects, sketches, and plans for each of the featured interior projects. Essays by Sarah Medford and Adrian Madlener detail De Cotiis’s references, inspiration, and dialogue with his clients, as well as his material sourcing and research. This book is the only publication on his interior projects to date, following on the heels of Vincenzo De Cotiis: Works, a collection of the studio’s functional sculptures.
