hate it or love it
Wallpaper's worst design of the year / Milano Triennale Design Museum collection
Wallpaper (February 2009): "We're huge fans of Italian designer Fabio Novembre, but it's quite difficult to believe that the man responsible for the series of witty Italian piazza-shaped trays, which we love so much (see Best Teatime Treats, page 059), could produce the 'Him' and 'Her' chairs. It's one thing to riff on a Panton chair as a playful homage, but quite another to mutilate it into crass fetishism. We hear that Novembre was inspired by the halcyon Genesis days when Adam and Eve wandered around the Garden of Eden and felt no shame. We bet they are feeling it now."
