Digit Petrol Blue Large Chandelier
Inspired by 1960’s pop culture, Babled’s Digit Petrol Blue Chandelier breaks away from traditional Murano style chandeliers. Each fixture is made of 23 spheres of hand-blown Murano glass, assembled with a level of accuracy that’s only possible with computer technology. Babled’s use of technology allows him to achieve precise and balanced forms that have established his reputation as one of the foremost designers of his generation, exemplifying modern Italian design combined with the craftsmanship of older traditions. The new Petrol Blue color was a result of a happy accident in the studio and will make its first appearance at Twenty First Gallery’s booth at Design Miami in November 2022.
Babled’s limited edition pieces are distinguished by their luxurious materials, clean forms and technical brilliance. Ranging from lighting, rugs, glass tableware, and furniture, his work exemplifies modern Italian design while drawing upon the craftsmanship of older traditions. Selecting the highest quality materials such as Carrara and Nero Marquinia marble, handblown Murano glass, and Sicilian volcanic stone, which have a storied artistic heritage passed down through generations, Babled uses computer technology to achieve the precise and balanced forms that have established his reputation as one of the foremost designers of his generation. Producing limited editions and unique pieces with a rigorous attention to excellence and quality, Babled’s sculptural works play in the space between abstraction and utility.
Babled has held solo exhibitions on several continents and his work is found in public and private collections worldwide. In addition to his solo design productions, he has consulted on design, art direction and craftsmanship for a number of businesses, creating work for a host of international companies including Baccarat, Covo, Idee Co. Ltd, Laurent Perrier, Rosenthal and Venini."
