Sometimes you get the chance to sit in a work of art.
It is not often that you are allowed to sit in a work of art, but the new signature piece by Emmanuel Babled lets you experience that unique sensation. This multipurpose furniture with its generous seating and distinct foundation truly embodies both craft and industry, beauty and function. So go on, please have a seat in Babled.
The craft-based work of celebrated French designer Emmanuel Babled has resulted in the easy chair Babled. What started out as a prototype in marble has, working with Offecct, been developed into commercial seating furniture that will be admired for its beauty as much as for its comfort and function in various public spaces.
“The inspiration for the shape and composition of Babled chair came to me when I saw a butterfly leaning on a brick. I loved the contrast between fragility and resilience. The finished piece defines a place in a somewhat cinematic way. While the flowing lines of the soft shell invite you to lean back and stick your legs out in a relaxed way, it also protects you and gives you a sense of control and coolness while swirling around, surveying a room in 360 degrees,” says Emmanuel Babled.
An organic form has been made into an upholstered seat, which is attached to a swivel base on one end of a rectangular foundation made of Corian® or wood.
