Babou armchair, a seat with an unusual and surreal character
The logical is combined with the irrational, forms come together in a play of opposites between minimalism and figurative exuberance. Inspired by the art of the surrealist painter Salvador Dalì, the Babou armchair is characterised by the design of its structure, an elegant graphic sign that outlines the backrest supporting the cushioning, made of organic polyurethane. Created asoutdoor furniture and also available in an indoor version thanks to the wide range of finishes and colours available, Babou reveals the company’s technical know-how andattention to ergonomics that distinguishes Paolo Castelli seating. Eclectic and minimalist at first glance, the Babou armchair does not shy away from being comfortable and cosy. Highly versatile, thanks to a simple coupling system the Babou armchair gives life to a new composition, a modular sofa that can be customised according to aesthetic and space requirements.
Origami lamp, fans of light
A subtle beauty, a full and never intrusive light that illuminates the room, evoking distant atmospheres. The Origami wall lamp is distinguished by the contemporary and longilinear trait of its individual components, each formed by two elements, a satin-finish brass base with protective clear coat, and a frontal one in matt black painted finish. Combined, the beams form a fan of light that animates the space, giving movement to the wall. The uniqueness of its design allows Origami to reveal its highly decorative character even when the lights are off. Each element has a different identity capable of dialoguing with the others, creating an elegant, romantic and contemplative atmosphere that invites one to slow down, recovering a sense of one’s own time. In the setting of the stand in Hall 5, the brand’s most iconic furnishings will dialogue with the new proposals, creating a place to tell small stories of timeless elegance.
