Nigel Coates

Architect, designer and commentator Coates is one of those rare talents whose vision relies on the overlap between professional fields. He considers the complexity and confusion of cities as fundamental to their attraction, an attitude which translates into his iconoclastic buildings. In 1998 he designed his proto-living unit, the Oyster House, which included a raft of objects including the OXO sofa system and the first of his vase designs in glass. His book ‘Guide to Ecstacity’, 2003, is published by Laurence King.
