Nigel Coates is one of the few English architects who is also renowned as a designer. He maintains the original and coherent idea that architecture and design should carefully reflect the confusion and sensuality of the city. His first success came about in Japan, where, during the 80's and 90's, he designed more than twenty buildings and interior designs. His work reflected that original mixture of enthusiastic intuition and culture that were intrinsic to him.
He subsequently built a wide range of shops, restaurants and museums in Europe and Great Britain, including the National Centre for Popular Music and the Geffrye Museum, both in England. These two works were chosen to represent England at the Biennial of Architecture 200. His furniture design and objects in glass, like those for Hitch Mylius and Salviati play with association and context and merge their stylistic references into sensual flowing forms.
Throughout his career, Coates promoted his ideas by means of exhibitions and publications, amongst which is his most ambitious book "Guide to Ecstacity". He is also a professor of Architectural Design at the Royal College of Art, London.
Wit, whimsy and warmth abound in the world of Slamp, an Italian lighting company founded in 1994 by former fashion show designer Robert Ziliani. From the beginning, Slamp has been mixing up a veritable cocktail of contemporary, high-concept aesthetics spiked with a cheeky attitude, and creating sophisticated, contemporary lighting with a playful ambiance.
