sofa by Vincenzo de Cotiis for Ceccotti Collezioni
Make a bold statement with this limited edition leather sofa by Vincenzo de Cotiis for Ceccotti Collezioni.
Designed by: Designed in 2007 by ‘swarthy’ Italian architect Vincenzo de Cotiis for Ceccotti Collezioni as part of his ‘Progetto Domestico’ experiment. This powerful looking leather sofa is beautifully constructed with rounded formed timber base, arms and backrest in curved plywood totally upholstered in darkest chocolate Italian leather. Full of organic strength and intrigue.
De Cotiis studied at the elite engineering and design school, the Milan Politecnico, where his work impressed the then Chairman of Flos Lighting Sergio Gandini who insisted de Cotiis establish his own studio. Today, at 58, he is globally revered for his ‘monastery-meets-laboratory’ approach to design and unique understanding of pure form and raw materials. Included in the Architectural Digest top 100 creative Designers 2019.
A fan of perfect imperfection, for de Cotiis, touch is as important as sight and the sensuous curves of this sofa were designed to be both a visual and tactile experience.
