his recent project as an interior designer


Quote:
In the heart of Milan there is a new design Hotel: the Straf! An inspired fusion of Italian fashion, original, design and elegance, with the latest technology and impeccable service. You could not wish for a better location: the building is situated in the heart of Milan, only few steps away from the Duomo Cathedral, La Scala Opera House, the shopping district and the fashionable Via Montenapoleone. The old facade dated 1800, contributes to create an inusual contrast with the minimalist design. Its 66 Rooms and Suites fuse the best of design and functionality with the maximum confort in a relaxed atmosphere marked out by rare materials. The architect, Mr. Vincenzo De Cotiis, also fashion designer of ´Haute´ Collection, has followed this project choosing unusual materials, such as scratched mirrors, burnished brass, iron, black stone, cement and gauze placed between panes of glass to give a transparent effect.

I can testify to that. I almost ripped one of his shirts apart when I tried it on, and I'm not a big guy, just not skinny.

Forgot to write Atrium is english-hungarian magazine, so you can use it too.
Intérieur is in hungarian, but it's worth the money even for the pictures.
