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.
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.
