Babila demonstrates that, when it comes to a design, the material can be as important as the shape. This new outdoor wall sconce is of polished stainless steel, with a rounded mirror producing a panoramic effect, reflecting its surroundings. It is not designed to be an architectural element, but rather a simple and beautiful object that draws attention, whether on or off, as it reveals the daily life occurring around it.
Babila comes in two sizes, 18 and 28 cm in diameter, and is also available in matt white or brown varnished aluminium, which provide a more discreet alternative to the chrome finish. In all of them an aura of blurred light is generated, a detail that contrasts with its material. Its lighting is indirect, soft on the wall, and well integrated into outside spaces.
