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.
Unique but not exactly what I'd expected
Very original, funky design -- recommended to me by the architect. The mirrored components have to be squeezed onto a foamy/structured base - which is OK (but makes assembly a little awkward) - but I could see that in "brand new" condition, the exterior of these components were simply film/tape-like and had small air bubbles beneath them and had already started to peel at the edges when I opened the box, which was disappointing....

We were blown away!
Although we were somewhat on the fence about these sconces, they really are incredible once installed. They are funky and very different than anything we have seen. Finally, when they did not arrive on time, Y Lighting actually expedited an overnight shipment so that they could be installed in time for a party we had. Thank you Darren!
