Baba

BABA is an organic soft-formed “furniture pet” that invites you to cuddle up to it, sit on it or sink into its warm embrace.

One of the main challenges in designing upholstered furniture is the limited elasticity and stretch of woven fabrics.

We have used a knitted 3D fabric specially designed for our project, which is exceptionally stretchy thanks to the production technique and the use of highly elastic thread.

This offers a high degree of sculptural latitude in the design without resorting to a complex patchwork of fabrics all stitched together.

The family includes BaBa easychair and BaBaBa addition sofas.
