New Classic by Fabio Novembre revisits a furnishing classic, the Chester, in a contemporary vein. And it does so by drawing inspiration from a reflection – that the elements that characterize a contemporary sofa are increasingly minimalistic and the public is expected to have the required sensitivity to be able to judge them. This is the only possible explanation as to why so many classic models continue to abound in homes all over the world. New Classic was born with the aim of bringing these two worlds closer together, starting from a rational contemporary base but embellishing itself with a round element that characterizes its shape. The option of being able to upholster it with contrasting colors enhances its expressive potential. At first glance, the Chester we all know and love is still there – it hasn’t been turned into just another sofa, yet it is as if it had been transformed into a sculpture, a study of volumes, solids and voids, shadows and highlights. A sofa that seems to emerge from a metaphysical plaza by De Chirico, or from a still life by Morandi. Once again, Fabio Novembre starts from an object present in everyone’s collective imagination and reworks it using new aesthetic codices. In the end, at first sight we comprehend who is behind New Classic, with his exceptional visual energy, which many people compare with Fellini’s for their ability to generate images, each bearing their own unmistakable hallmark. The meeting with Natuzzi occurs precisely within this common ground, focusing on the personality of objects, on their ability to immediately evoke a world, a place, an imagery. In this case Puglia, its unforgettable atmospheres, its timeless Harmony.
