Vincenzo De Cotiis Architects, a Milan-based architecture and design studio, is internationally renowned for creating sophisticated interiors and experimental design. With over 30 years of experience in design, De Cotiis’s aesthetic is both lavish and spare, rich and raw with primacy of material over form. Referencing and reinterpreting art with just as much emphasis on the process of designing as the end product, his spaces and furniture verge upon sculpture.

Perfect imperfection, achieved through innovative deconstruction, reconstruction and reappropriation of salvaged textiles, metals, wood, leather, stone and fiberglass is what constitutes De Cotiis’s original style. Origins are often abstracted but age and use are always left vaguely visible as VDA finds beauty in the patina of life, demonstrated in his architecture and interior projects for private and commercial clients around the world.
