Fabio Novembre, Italian architect and designer and evident wordsmith/prophet is the newest collection of designers whose work is available in the form of fabulous furniture available at KE-ZU.
Rolling out as part of the new collection for Spanish manufacturer Vondom at Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013 is Novembre’s “f3” set of outdoor furniture, no doubt destined for international greatness (see the KE-ZU Blog post here).
Fascinating and as visually bursting as f3 is the wider Novembre catalogue – however it’s Novembre’s manifesto, his public poetic declaration of aim is as intriguing as it is breathtaking:
Since 1966, I’ve responded to those who call me Fabio Novembre.
Since 1992, I’ve responded to those who also call me “architect”.
I cut out spaces in the vacuum by blowing air bubbles, and I make gifts of sharpened pins so as to insure I never put on airs.
My lungs are imbued with the scent of places that I’ve breathed, and when I hyperventilate it’s only so I can remain in apnea for awhile.
As though I were pollen, I let myself go with the wind, convinced I’m able to seduce everything that surrounds me.
I want to breathe till I choke.
I want to love till I die.
It’s this sort of passion which embodies the successful designers concepts and design, an obsession with eloquence which translates to his vast body of work. Overwhelming in its diversity but continually maintaining its fascination – we suggest that you spend some time devouring the epic portfolio, a tiny selection shown below.
