How to exclude a list of specific items from Solr search results

I’m pretty sure that happens to you to look for items that match specific criteria except  few specific ones. We all have friends that don’t  know what they want, but they know what they don’t want. (I love you baby).

In my case, the client wanted a list of case studies specific to an  industry except those that the visitor already saw.  The first thought is to get results from Solr and then filter those already seen.
