BABYLON Collection by Harry-Paul brings artful asymmetry and uncompromising modernity to the outdoor living room. A perfect complement to any DEDON dining or lounge setting, this iconic collection consists of much more than mere accessories. Whether in smooth handmade ceramic or translucent rotomolded polyethylene, BABYLON’s sculptural stools, side tables and lighting units stand on their own.

CHARACTERISTICS

Characterized by its ribbed, asymmetrical, seemingly collapsing forms, BABYLON is the result of years of development and no shortage of imagination or perseverance. Among the ceramic side tables in mineral colors, the BABYLON collection includes extra-large planter, a side- table/stool in rotomolded polyethylene and, in the same sturdy design, rechargeable LED lighting unit with eight-step dimmer and handy remote control.

Each product is offering a large variety of qualities: ceramic pieces are frost proof, non-absorbing, with excellent resistance to scratches, abrasion and indirect tensile stress, whereas polyethylene is 100% recyclable, light yet robust at the same time.

QUOTES

DEDON’s Chief Creative Officer, Sonja van der Hagen, agrees that the effort was worth it. “With BABYLON,” she says, “we’re able to help our customers to create outdoor living rooms that are both stunning and unique.”
