Meet Fabio

Updated: Jun 2, 2021

Meet the founder of Noogar, Fabio Esposito. This month on the magazine Vecin@s, interviewed by Susana Pinto.



Like many of us, Fabio Esposito knows the island for the first time on a vacation. «I was born in Southern Italy, where I lived until I moved to Rome to study Literature and Disciplines of the ShowBusiness. I have always had the need to have art and beauty around me. Upon graduation», he adds, «I realised that I was missing something, and I continued studying Photography and graphic design platforms. From Rome I went to London to continue my training in Art and Design, and better understand the combination of colours, light and forms. It was in London, where I spent more than 10 years, that I started with interior design, and realised that it was my passion ».



Why did you decide to move to Fuerteventura?


I came on vacation for two weeks and I loved the colours of the mountains of the island, the light, the beaches... and in three months I made the move. Now I live in Villaverde, near a stunning mountain.

And it is in Fuerteventura where Noogar, my Interior Design and Home Styling company, was born.


Talk to us with more details about your project, Noogar.


My goal is to create beautiful, functional and pleasant spaces for home or business and offer services that specifically adapt to the clients' taste and budget. With Noogar I do not only offer Interior Design and Home Styling services, but it is also a way to collaborate with creatives and professionals from the Canary Islands. My wish is to offer a totally personalised service, to plan the space, renovate, make or commission unique decorations, include works by artists and local artisans, and more. Thanks to the collaborations with professionals and to my artistic abilities, I can do everything the client desires.

For example, I worked on a house in Gran Tarajal, for a client that was quite particular when coming to decorations and art; what I did was to create all the art, the bedspreads and the cushions myself. I did everything with organic fabrics, linen and cotton, which I decorated and I painted with natural colours prepared with cochineal, onion skin, turmeric and more. This is just an example of how much I can customise my services, but you can get an idea of ​​my work on my website www.noogar.com.



The trend seems to be that we want services that are more and more personalised...


I think we have passed the time in which everybody wanted big brands and to follow specific trends, and are now returning to the natural elements. People want something unique and not find the same pieces at a friend's home. For this reason I work directly with an extensive list of suppliers, so that I can offer different styles at exclusive prices and my clients can save money without giving up their dreams.


Fabio, do you consider yourself an artist? I don't like to call that myself, but I have a great range of possibilities to express myself with art. Within Interior Design I can included photography, painting, and creating spaces that are different every time. At the same time I am a perfectionist and doing Interior Design allows me to give space to this perfectionism because it is also a very analytical job.


What techniques do you use to design?


I am very organised in my work, but I never follow only one style because I like to adapt to the client's taste, always aiming for harmony and beauty. I reinvent myself every day, this is the magic of working every time with different people and that's why I do not want a precise style for my business. In the job I did in London for many years I got used to adapting to the clients' needs and taste and to the changes of trends, although I think that everyone should create a personal trend for their home. So that, when entering a house, you can feel the personality of the people who inhabit it.



What do your customers ask you the most? I work with both local and international clients. The majority of them have an idea of what they want to do, but they just do not know where to start from and how to mix elements nicely, and that's what I like doing the most. They ask me especially to make changes, renovate and also to decorate houses before putting them on sale. Another service that I often get asked for is the 3D space planning, to take a look at the space before the real work starts.


Do you feel welcomed on the island?

I really like the island, I feel very good here, and the people are very friendly and welcoming. I love being to enjoy nature and to find inspiration everywhere.


Where can we find you? On www.noogar.com you can find my phone number and email address. There is also a blog where I share my creative process from beginning to end, so that you can see what I do and how I do it. And I have Facebook and Instagram profiles, of course.
