Sustainability in Interior Design
QUARK CORK by Babled Studio
The Quark series of low tables is an exploration of materials and production techniques that give rise to unique monolithic tables. The raw materials of cork and marble are combined with Plexiglas, bronze and copper, breaking away from the traditional Italian approach to craft and design. The precision of digital tools gives the tables an original organic shape, resulting in design functionality with a sculptural identity.
WHEN ART MEETS TECHNOLOGY
LIBRASTONE by Babled Studio
Librastone limited-edition low tables rest on a curved base, balancing on one point. Made in Italy in white Carrara marble or brown tobacco stone, Librastone’s point of gravity is manipulated through the use of algorithmic software that allows the tabletop to achieve a perfectly horizontal position. The project is customizable in different materials following the same gravity-based principle.
This is an example of how Emmanuel Babled combines new technology with traditional craft techniques to obtain unexpected, almost magical design pieces.
