The outer layer is made of mirrored metal that conceals a warm intensely red leather room. Italian furniture house Natuzzi who specializes in leather and upholstery, join this experience with Novembre to made the interior of the dome , a intricate puzzle of 120 pieces of red leather, stitched by hand. ‘If you think about it, an egg is like a solidified uterus, and the apparent great difference between oviparous and viviparous species is simply a matter of the consistency of the outer membrane. If we then tried to plunder our remotest amniotic memories, it would be easy to show that our earliest perception of space occurred while we were floating about in the warm hollow of an ovoid form and that every concept of domesticity is geared to recreating that condition.

“However, unlike the gestational sac, the egg retains its formal and aesthetic dignity even after it has carried out its function. Perhaps this is why mankind has always been fascinated by its shape, and why all its vital potential has always been associated with the idea of perfection.
