Italian architect Vincenzo De Cotiis uses recycled fiberglass among other materials for his stunningly artistic Murano glass furniture collection. Referred to as 'En Plein Air objects,' the elegant pieces fuse avant-garde and expressionism. The resulting silhouettes are, without a doubt, of high interest to collectors as the mixed-material exterior allows for textures and aesthetics to contrast.

Vincenzo De Cotiis arranges each piece in the Murano glass furniture capsule to contain a "semi-previous stone and cast brass set in resin." The sculptural objects — a total of 20, engage audience members by challenging the combination and perception of materials. The eclectic exterior surfaces are further reinforced with an experimental flair through abstract frameworks that juxtapose traditional furniture formats.
