A celebrated Italian designer and architect, Fabio Novembre is selected as the new Art Director of Italian brand Driade. Known for creating iconic products for Driade’s brilliant collections for years-, Novembre has now become the organization’s creative leader. 

Novembre has been involved in designing enthralling objects, showrooms, boutiques, interiors and restaurants for the leading global fashion brands, including Blumarine and Stuart Weitzman. He has also designed architectures for societies such as Lamborghini and AC Milan.

Driade, which has recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, believes that Novembre, with his flair, charisma and maverick creativity, will undoubtedly capture the energy of fashion that Driade’s CEO Giuseppe Di Nuccio is contributing to the furniture world. Giuseppe describes Novembre as a ‘space organiser, globetrotter, trend-setter and lover of beauty.’

On asking Novembre about being selected as a leader at Driade, the prestigious architect said that it is now his duty to make Driade soar in the furniture world. Talking about his purpose to capture the essence of Dirade’s strong deep roots along with brightening its future, he mused, “Wind will blow thanks to the contribution of the best minds, in line with the tradition of Driade: a nymph that, at 50, has lost none of its charm. The best has yet to come!”

In 2007 at Salone Del Mobile, Novembre presented ‘Venus’ a bookcase for Driade where he incorporated a human structure in it. Designed from oak veneer, the bookcase sectioned into five parts, and a statue made of marble mixed with resin rested in between the wooden slabs.
