(jiří macek) The opulent Luciola chandelier, designed for the luxury Italian brand of Driade by Fabio Novembre, looks like a birdcage from the 19th century. The diodes sit on perches and silently glow from their songs.
Well, I may have gotten carried away. This is, of course, too far-fetched. I mean that it is the perches and songs that glow. Luciola is awesome. The Italian virtuoso Fabio Novembre has designed a distinctive chandelier with a considerable dose of atmosphere of wealthy palaces and town houses from the 19th century. It is strange that the forty-year-old Novembre revives the spirit of postmodernism. Even though I find the theatrical poetics in his furniture pieces very scary, including the chair with a theatre mask in place of a backrest that was presented by Driade this year, he can be unexpectedly delicate and charming in the designs of accessories and lights. Fabio Novembre is simply a poet, both mean and noble, cursed and beloved, and simply great.
