PRIME MATTER PHOTOBOOTH

Emmanuel Babled

The Litta Variations / Opus 5 – Palazzo Litta, Milan

In collaboration with: BABLED Editions

Inspired by the Stairs of Honour, the Photobooth installation is the preview of primematter.net. This new online platform, conceived by BABLED Design, focuses on materials, processes, and social environments, and will promote, share and sell sustainable manufacturing and design projects as an alternative to mass production, uniting traditional craftsmanship with digital technologies.
The Editions presented at Palazzo Litta will be the first designs available on the platform. Quark Cork, now in its 10 th year, is 100% Portuguese and 100% sustainable. The Pulse lamp, originally created with Simone Crestani for the Doppia Firma project curated by Fondazione Cologni is given a new take as are the Art Light Digit and the Supernova Lamp with its thin layer of perfectly balanced, robotically milled Carrara marble. The Babled Easy Chair completes the installation. Developed by the Swedish company Offecct from an original marble design by Emmanuel Babled, the piece is here presented in a new version with a cork base.
