jos chair

The progenitor of the range, the steel chair, has a slightly vintage style that recalls chairs of early 1900s Parisian bistros.


jos chair 
By Simone Bonanni


The Parisian bistros furniture inspire Simone Bonanni’s Jos collection in aluminium alloy and steel. The shapes evoke familiar imagery and recall the flavour of traditions, made contemporary thanks to a skilful study of proportions. The chairs, small armchairs, sofas and benches can be finished with a cushion in contrasting fabric. The day bed interprets the perfect balance between lightness and strength typical of the brand. Tabletops are in white HPL (High Pressure Laminate) with a chalk-white, cement or rust effect.

Babel, the most important and one of the oldest cities in Ancient Near East, was built, destroyed, conquered, resurrected, inhabited by people of many different nations and languages. To us it’s the symbol of modern culture.
Traditionally, Babylon is synonymous with chaos and it’s exactly what fascinates us – obtaining the best that chaos has to offer: vital energy.

Men and women of different origins and cultures work with us to create unique, non-ephemeral products that will be dispersed throughout the world like Babylon’s inhabitants.

Mauro Baraldo

BABEL D, created in 2022 by young entrepreneurs to produce outdoor furniture, represents the synthesis between a long experience in metalworking and the ecological needs that guide the choices and behavior of current and future generations of consumers.

At BABEL D we create new codes in furniture, just as we have done for more than 40 years in other industries. The search for authenticity pushes us beyond traditional boundaries: we are provocative and visionary.

Our furniture’s aesthetics, comfort, longevity, and ecological compatibility inspire our designs, combining technology and emotion to bring comfort and friendliness to your garden or terrace.

BABEL D uses metals (steel, aluminum alloys, stainless steel) to produce its furniture because they guarantee a long life. In addition, they can be easily recycled. The protective treatments, which ensure product preservation and aesthetic integrity, are carried out using non-polluting materials and techniques certified by the relevant suppliers.

We cooperate intensively with our designers, people of different nationalities, cultures, and experiences, who have reviewed every detail and accepted every production or functional observation. The BABEL D project uses diversity, alternating harmonies, and contrasts. The result is apparently illogical but full of inexhaustible energy.

All the engineering and experimental testing phases and metal part production take place at BABEL D‘s Arcore facilities. Specialized and certified suppliers are entrusted with the finishing, galvanizing, and painting processes. Our carefully selected suppliers test and certified fabrics.

Quality assurance operations are carried out according to strict protocols in our laboratories or, often, at suppliers’ premises according to agreed standards. Independent bodies carry out and certify resistance tests.
