The first book on the interiors of sought-after architect Vincenzo De Cotiis collects more than a decade of the atelier’s projects.

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.
Vincenzo De Cotiis was born in 1958 in Gonzaga, Italy. He studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and founded his studio in Milan where he lives and works. Sarah Medford is Contributing Editor, Design, Culture & Lifestyle, WSJ Magazine and Off Duty. Adrian Madlener is a New York–based writer and curator exploring craft-led experimentation and sustainability in art, architecture, and design.

"Milan-based Vincenzo De Cotiis is best recognized for his sculptural, meditative pieces that also shine in his minimalist interiors. This book’s featured projects—all of them found in his native Italy except for a hôtel particulier in Paris—illuminate the dialogue that De Cotiis forges between materials like recycled fiberglass, cast brass, marble, and hand-painted fabrics. —ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST

"All of the high-concept, meditative spaces fully embody De Cotiiis’s elevated style, which sees rare stones and polished metals juxtaposed with classical backdrops that have been stripped of modern, awkward adornments. The dazzling volume—which also includes sketches and floor plans—is the first fully realized glimpse into the practice of a pioneering talent who has been likened to legends such as Gio Ponti and Carlo Scarpa" —GALERIE MAGAZINE
