Babel by Poltrona Frau
Babel is a compact home bar unit comprising three cupboards in two different sizes.
The largest, placed on the floor to support the other two, is in multiply birch with an ebony veneer MDF top and it has a chromium-plated tubular steel divider for bottles. The smaller cupboards, which rest on the larger one, have lift-up doors and are in multiply birch with ebony veneer on the parts visible inside.
One has a chromium-plated tubular steel divider for glasses, the other houses a chromium-plated storage box with ebony veneer MDF lid and has a chromium-plated steel handle. The bottom of all three containers is finished in matt black scratch-proof paint.
A steel mechanism allows the two top cupboards to rotate outwards, giving access to the one underneath. The visible parts of the mechanism have a matt black lacquer finish. The outside upholstery of Babel is in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather, edged in matching Pelle Frau leather from the Color System.
The cupboards are lined in red Alcantara. Both top cupboards have two handles in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather: one is for opening the door and the other is fitted to a chromium-plated aluminium plate on the side and is used to turn the unit and give access to the cupboard underneath. Four black swivel wheels make Babel easy to move.
