Vincenzo de Cottis is already a very familiar name to those that are true avid modern design lovers. The designer has a vast collection of beautifully-crafted pieces and amongst them, there are the shiniest and most imposing modern cabinets for any contemporary living area. De Cottis is an honorable name from a very iconic art gallery that you certainly have heard about, Carpenters Workshop Gallery.
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 furniture design scene, Vincenzo 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.
Select works are available through the artist’s gallery in Milan, Carpenters Workshop Gallery, and at leading global design fairs including Design Miami/ Basel, PAD London, TEFAF, Design Dubai and Art Paris. 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.
