Origin

2014

Limited Edition

8 + 4AP

Origin is a low table made from white Carrara marble, produced in Italy. Origin is a continuation of Emmanuel Babled’s exploration into producing new interpretations of classical materials and techniques.The heavy stone alludes to a perception of lightness.

Curved around the structure itself, the thin marble appears skin-like, tense and tight. This method allows the inside to become the outside, while the outside transforms inwardly. This creates a soft hole, the navel…the origin.
