Concept

Fabio Novembre uses furniture design to tell intense and fascinating stories in which the protagonist is often the human figure. This human figure is capable of becoming abstract and universal, able to propose a mythic beauty as occurred in Greek art.

Like a mask, it simultaneously conceals and reveals its inhabitant.
