Intro by Fabio Novembre for ROOMS exhibition

Intro is a dome-shaped futuristic architecture installation adjourned with a deep red leather interior. This project realized by the architect Fabio Novembre is part of the “ROOMS: novel living concepts“, an event dedicated to the state of interior architecture for the XXI Triennale International Exhibition in Milan. Each construction showcases the vision of a select practitioner who presents their personal perspective of what a room should should be, encompass and feel like.

Fabio Novembre worked on the idea of a bedroom, integrating it into the most perfect and ancestral shape. The concept builds upon the form of an egg which represents a source of life and transformation: taking shape as a large chrome egg reminiscent of a futuristic space dome adorned with a deep red leather interior, Novembre presented his interpretation replying that “the egg is our first bedroom, we stay there for nine months, for me it was obvious”. The outer layer, realized with almax – known for their expertise in mannequin and display design – is made of mirrored metal that conceals a warm intensely red leather room.

Italian furniture house Natuzzi who specializes in leather and upholstery, partnered with Novembre to realize the interior of the dome which is a complex puzzle of 120 pieces of red leather, all assembled by hand. The intimate, sensual environment is guarded by two feminine figures who stand at the opening of the room. Inside the space one can see the features of a face imprinted upon the walls, using its mouth as the opening of the entrance. The circular shape of the construction allows visitors to see themselves within the form of a womb causing them to contemplate and reflect upon the idea of on what a room can be, what it can contain, and how it can relate to us on a personal level.
