Last month at FuoriSalone in Milan from 14 to 19 April 2015, Nigel Coates presented an especially designed furniture range for Castello di Potentino with the Paracastello. The designer also launched new pieces designed for his eponymous Nigel Coates Editions collection. New products from Nigel Coates Editions collection will also be presented at Paracastello. TLmag visited this place and shared a good time with the British designer. He presented new products from his collections at Paracastello but also his glasses Headsup stemware – created during one workshop of Glass Is Tomorrow. The Feral collection with its cubist designs marks a turning point for the British designer and communicates his desire to use a more rectilinear language to express energy and dynamism. Drawing upon Nigel Coates’ affinity with the artisanal world and exceptional eye for detail, Feral is made in a small workshop in Tuscany using walnut, cherry and ash.
