The designer and architect Fabio Novembre was born on October 21, 1966 in Lecce, Italy, initially studied architecture before moving to New York in 1993 to study directing; however, he quickly realized that his true passion was design and so moved to Hong Kong to become a designer. In 1994, he returned to Milan where he opened his own studio and realised a series of store designs for Anna Molinari - in Hong Kong, London, Singapore and Taipei. This was quickly followed by a number of other interior design projects, for shops bars, restaurants and hotels. Since 2001, Fabio Novembre has also increasingly designed furniture, including the table series Org and the sofas And and Divina. In 2009, the provocateur presented the playful Him & Her pair of chairs, two chairs which frontally reminiscent of the classic Panton Chair, but from the back resemble a male or female posterior. In addition, Fabio has realized projects for companies such as Casamania and Driade and also created a homage to Anna Castelli Ferrieri with the Componibili Smile for the renowned Italian manufacturer Kartell.
