Emmanuel Babled was born in France in 1967. He studied Industrial Design at Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan, graduating in 1989 and founding his own design studio in 1992. In 2010 Emmanuel Babled Studio moved to Amsterdam after many years in Milan. Since the start, he has developed a wide range of unique pieces and limited editions in self-production and for prestigious manufacturers such as Venini, Baccarat, Rosenthal and Covo. These pieces are part of private and public collections around the world. At the same time he has also designed industrial products, furniture and lighting. His clients include Baccarat, Rosenthal, Venini, Bulgari, Iittala, Dupont de Nemours, Fontana Arte, Oluce, I&I, Laurent Perrier, Waterford Crystal, Felice Rossi, Henge, Covo, Giannini, Idee Co Ltd, Marzoretti Ronchetti, Viceversa, and Vistosi, among many others. Emmanuel design approach is based on the idea that a good project is born through direct contact and physical presence in the territory of its production. Observing materials and techniques in their authentic surroundings, gaining a feeling for places and social conditions have become an important part of his work method. Territorial skills and the human factor are elements that determine the result. He has been working with glass in Murano for many years, a long and successful collaboration. He works with marble in Carrara and carpets in north of India and Nepal and is continuing to explore different types of territorial skills. Far from merely celebrating tradition, he is more interested in challenging traditional methods in order to obtain innovative and meaningful results. His work often combines a historical knowledge of the craft mixed with a computerized process and original composition. (From Lightform with thanks).
