Babel - Italian taste and Japanese technical elements

icon icon

Italian taste and Japanese technical elements. Because you can create everything imaginable with your hands

Notebooks bound using Japanese techniques, paper from all over the world or handmade, silkscreen printed prints and t-shirts, all presented with care for detail and alternative packaging.
Babel is a project launched in 2014 wanting to hand-make anything creative; using techniques acquired in years of artistic collaboration, but never taking yourself too seriously.


Q&A with Babel

Your town. And three words to describe it.
They are really four in one: NapoliGenovaTorinoMilano, large, intimate and turbulent.

Three words to describe your projects.
Experimentation, technique and imagination.

A colour.

A taste.

Antique, modern or contemporary?
Contemporary with a vintage taste.

The most precious item you own?
An old tin box that belonged to my grandmother.

Where is design going?
There’s a growing division between large and even larger and small and even more experimental returning to craftsmanship.

Where are you going?
I’m building my world.

Three words to describe Italy.
Genius, unruliness and the art of getting by.

If not in Italy, where?

Never without?
A notebook.

A motto.
Said by Bruno Murani "When someone says: I know how to do this too, it means he knows how to redo it otherwise he would already have done it".
