Designer Emma Elizabeth Coffey is taking monochrome to a new level.
August 28th, 2008
A mirror, a coffee table and two spheres in black and white sit encased in clear acrylic boxes, like some obscure museum exhibit.
These encapsulated pieces form part of the latest collection, titled CHIUSO, from Australian-born designer Emma Elizabeth Coffey.
Spending her early years in the United States and the UK, Emma Elizabeth Coffey returned to Australia in her teens. Completing degrees in the Built Environment and Architecture and Arts History in Queensland she went on to study in London and Milan, earning a degree in Commercial Interior Design (Scenografia) from the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED).
Taking inspiration from her travels and study abroad, Coffey’s individual designs are strikingly bold with an emphasis on monochromatic schemes. The designer believes strongly that we see things more clearly in black and white.
Emma Elizabeth featured at Zona Tortona Milan Design Week 2006 and Milan’s Salone del Mobile and has produced work for industry names like Philippe Starck.
Specialising in art direction, styling, runway fashion, graphic wallpapers and commercial, product and interior design, Coffey takes pride in her designs as an expression of her own individual style, not emulations of others’.
