About Emmanuel Babled

Using aqueous, biomorphic forms and imaginatively juxtaposed materials, Emmanuel Babled’s “Osmosi” series features sensuous designs that flaunt their sensuality and otherworldly grace. Babled is partial to using colored Murano glass and white Carrara marble in his work. He creates thick, droplet-shaped glass forms and contrasts their voluptuous and erotically suggestive shapes against robust and hard-edged stone. “My approach to design is also an ethical issue,” Babled has said. “It’s about allowing the material to bring out results that are not necessarily related to orthogonal forms.” Babled is attracted to organic shapes, and they appear in his vase-like creations as well as other pieces including lamps, tables, and chairs. He also balances the production of editioned series with industrial projects, creating both singular works and mass-produced objects.

French, b. 1967, based in Lisbon, Portugal
