CASA REALE

Provocateur and protagonist, Nigel Coates, continues to challenge design expectations with his Casa Reale presentation at his London showroom. Casa Reale evokes a chimerical residence where games of light, refraction and scale distort perceptions.

Visitors will first encounter the exhibit in the White Post Gallery, a space in miniature atop the gatepost on one of the busiest pedestrian corners in London. In this teaser installation, maquettes of some of the exhibits to be found in the main space occupy a lantern-like outpost. Inside, the showroom features many of Coates’ most recent collaborations with Italian design companies including the Picaro chair in leather and polished steel, the Cuore LED wall light and the Angel Falls crystal chandelier. With their iconic vocabulary derived from the body itself, they are instinctual responses to human nature. Many of them have the power to transform a space by subtle attenuation.

SPECIAL EVENT

Nigel Coates will give a behind the scene tour of Casa Reale, explaining the concept of and process behind the development of his new collection. Limited numbers.
