When Fabio Novembre designed a Bisazza space in Berlin in 2003, he took as his theme Samuel Beckett’s classic play, Waiting for Godot. “The sense of this inspiration comes from my personal perception of Berlin as a place on stand-by, a place in which something is always about to happen, but takes time to manifest itself, the capital of historical suspense,” he explained. Part of the decor was this gigantic mask, which has two different facets. The front is made from mirrored steel, while the inside is covered in tiny handmade gold tesserae.
