Product description

Brand:  Cappellini, Italy www.cappellini.it Designer:  Fabio Novembre Design Connected ID: 2363

One of the chairs Novembre made for Cappellini in 2003 was entitled SOS, an acronym for Sofa of Solitude. It is an unwelcoming black foam block, from which has been hollowed an organic shape that is reminiscent of a seated or lying body. The internal space of the seat has been covered in textured, metallic gold PVC. At the time photos came out of a long-haired, unkempt Novembre sitting naked and forlorn in the chair, looking much like a person “shipwrecked”. SOS has a highly personal background: Novembre had just been left by his girlfriend of several years, and this was a heartfelt “manifesto” about solitude. “Loneliness in this world is golden, because they make you think you can have everything you want, you can do whatever you want, you don’t have to compromise. But to me it’s a golden cage…It’s a world that is taking a bad direction in a really selfish way.”
Hence the gold of the inside of the seat, and the black irresolute darkness of the rest of it – “the world we are living in,” says Novembre. Much later he concludes the story, saying that his “SOS went straight to his girlfirend’s heart”. And for Novembre, that’s important, because he believes in happy ends and in the power of love. Above all, he believes in loving what you do. “I cannot think of what I do as a job, I think I’m so lucky to speak with the things that I do.” And he thinks this love can, or rather should, be applied by most people to what they do. “You just have to filter everything you do with poetry,” he cries.
