Born in Malvern in 1949, Nigel Coates is a successful English architect and designer. He is continually challenging traditional design and creating contemporary products that are both artistic and practical. By putting passion into every project, he makes iconic pieces of furniture, including chairs, sofas, tables, and light fixtures. Over his long and lustrous career, he has collaborated with many prestigious Italian brands, including the lighting company Terzani.
Coates' designs use a combination of sinuous curves, eye-catching angles, and clean lines. With sparkling accents and the use of ambient lighting, the light fixtures transform spaces beautifully. His work is on display in museums and galleries around the world.
