Fabio Novembre was born in Lecce in 1966 and got his bachelor’s degree in Architecture at the Polytechnic University of Milan in 1992. One year later, he moved to New York where he attended a film direction course at the New York University. He opened his studio in 1994, which immediately became an international reference for architecture, thanks to the powerful expressivity and iconicity of his style.
A leading light in the international design industry for over twenty years due to the visual power and iconic natureof his style.
Marked by a highly recognisable visionary approach, his work has received a series of accolades and mentions in publications over the years. He has been scientific director of the Domus Academy and served
on the scientific committee of the Design Museum at the Milan Triennale since 2019.
apulia, motherland and muse
Novembre and Natuzzi not only share a bond with Apulia which is a “motherland” and muse for both of them, but they also have a common passion for narration. This is what triggered their first key project together called Intro which was a 2016 Triennale installation put on display inside the “Stanze- Altre filosofie dell’abitare” (“Rooms - Novel living concepts”) exhibition in partnership with the Salone del Mobile. Four years down the line, Natuzzi and Novembre continue their remarkable teamwork, as is apparent from the strong bold aesthetic of the new products born into the Circle of Harmony.
