Dezeen – Vincenzo de Cotiis uses painterly approach to create high-detail furniture
Italian architect Vincenzo de Cotiis combines recycled fibreglass with precious materials to create his En Plein Air objects, which are currently on show in London.
De Cotiis is presenting 20 pieces of sculptural furniture at the Carpenter’s Workshop Gallery in Mayfair, including lighting, tables, cabinets and bookshelves.
Each piece comprises semi-precious stone and cast brass set in resin, alongside elements of fibreglass and Murano glass.
The designer said his approach was slightly back to front – he started by thinking about the surface of the objects he was creating.
“I always start from materials – they’ve always been part of my research. But they all come together with a sort of line, which in this case is the material of recycled fibreglass,” De Cotiis told Dezeen. “I start from a design or a sketch that then builds the materiality of the piece.”
