This artist book is the most comprehensive survey of Novembres interior architecture and product design. In little over a decade Fabio Novembre has made a name for himself with eye-candy interiors, spectacular installations, and lush yet functional product designs. Novembre is a solo voice in today's chorus of minimalism, creating interiors, furniture, designs, and installations by mixing old and new materials, setting the time zone between Byzantium and Blade Runner. Strong and eloquent, in no way humble or soft-spoken, his architecture is radically explicit and manifest. He interweaves the pleasures of living with high design seemingly with perfect ease to create environments as he himself experiences them: intensely, and on a vibrantly personal level.This book is a comprehensive survey of Novembres designs to date, including the Blumarine store in London, the S.O.S. chair, and his chaise lounge for Cappellinipoetic creations that stir the often-lazy territories of communication and contemporary design and set new markers to future courses for international design style.
