Emmanuel Babled was born in France in 1967. He studied at the European Institute of Design in Milan where he graduated in Industrial Design in 1989. In 1992 he founded Emmanuel Babled Studio, working independently. Since 1995 Babled has developed glassware and tableware, luxurious object for the fashion market, limited editions and unique pieces, designed for prestigious manufacturers.
Emmanuel Babled’s design approach is based on the idea that a good project comes about through direct contact and physical presence in the territory of its production. Observing materials and techniques in their authentic surroundings and gaining a feeling for places and
social conditions have become integral parameters in his work method. This approach is not only driven by anthropological interest, but mental immersion, leading to a creative process that is both individual and innovative. Emmanuel Babled’s designs encompass tradition,
modernity, sacredness, consumption, artisanal production and sustainability. This unique mix gives his work a contemporary, poetic and transcultural character.
