Over the years, Milan-based architect Fabio Novembre has worked for Italian design brands such as Cappellini, Flaminia and Meritalia, and he was just recently appointed director of the Domus Academy school of design. His EUR Stool (2017) was inspired by Italian architecture of the 1920s and ’30s in Rome’s Esposizione Universale Roma (EUR) district, more specifically the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, aka the Colosseo Quadrato (Square Coliseum). Consisting of a solid piece of thermoplastic technopolymer with recesses reminiscent of the loggias that dot the building it emulates, this understated piece can be used in a variety of locations as a seat, footstool or side table in a wide variety of spaces. Made in Italy.
