Fabio Novembre, designer and Domus Academy scientific director will be the protagonist of a special interview led by the journalist Caterina Lunghi. Past Forward will start from Novembre as a student progressively getting in touch with the Italian Design maestros, some of them also founders of DA, through the value of cross disciplinarity, until his approach to design and perspectives for the next generation of international design professionals.
A projection into the future from solid roots.
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. Throughout the years, he has collaborated with the most important Italian design firms and his work has been acknowledged and published all over the world for his visionary approach. Since 2019, Fabio Novembre has been the Art Director of Driade, Scientific Director of Domus Academy and a member of the scientific committee of the Design Museum of the “Triennale di Milano”.
