These charming additions allow you to create a true tablescape environment; from the tones and textures of the urban landscape, to a more rural setting or a dramatic mountaintop. Inspired by his own natural and artificial surroundings, French designer Ferréol Babin has delightfully crafted this set of three ceramic structures. An almost whimsical set of buildings, mountains and lakes that bring a sense poetry to functional table objects.
Keep your treasured possessions “safe as houses” with the geometric glazed Building boxes. Architecturally inspired, their lines exteriors are topped off with a generous cantilevered top.
Each piece is handmade from ceramic, and applied with a glossy glaze. Streaks and other variations in size and colour are part of handmade production processes, and not defects in the design or production.
All the furniture, luminaires and accessories by Ferréol Babin show a distinctive artisanal, almost archaic style. Similar to a sculptor, the French product and space designer loves to shape things with his hands. Intending a fine mixture of rationality and emotion, he uses earthly, sensual materials and blends functional with artistic elements – an unique experimental minded linking him to the pulpo philosophy.
Rising over your tablescape comes the Building box. Slender in stature, it recalls the atypical aspects of the modern metropolis; a geometric form, whose smooth ceramic finish channels the steel and glass of our urban environments. Available in a deep black, or metal brown glazed finish, its cantilevered canopy keeps safe your objects within.
This Building box brings to mind the industrial areas so familiar within out urban landscapes. An industrial aesthetic accentuated by the deep black, or metal brown glazed finish to their ceramic structures. With a stretched out footprint, its lined exterior is topped with an equally generous cantilevered top. Space enough to keep all your possessions under one roof.
