Nigel Talk, June 2013

Talk N.°1- Nigel Coates, curated by Claudia Pignatale and Monica AG Scanu

June 17, 2013 – 7PM
Rome, Via Giovanni da Castel Bolognese, 81

The designer Nigel Coates will be the opening act of SecondoMe Talks for it’s first edition of curated lectures on Monday, June 17th, 2013 at 7PM during the inauguration of the new gallery in Rome on Via Giovanni da Castel Bolognese, 81.
During the lecture, Monica AG Scanu will conduct a conversation with Nigel Coates, the fascinating British Architect and Designer, regarding all topics from designer home decor and objects for Secondome Editions, to his participation in the collective exhibition Déjà vu! which launched with the new gallery space.
Nigel Coates interprets his vision through imagination and the objects that host his creativity. His presence in the Déjà Vu show transforms objects into functional sculptures thanks to his collaboration with Italian manufacturers and artisans, alongside Fratelli Boffi of Lentate for instance. Hand in hand, the union between the genius of Coates and the high quality craftsmandship of the Italian production houses, give light to an array of limited edition collections such as: Buttoned-Up, Domo Coffee Table e Ombretta 2.
