The outdoor sconce is made from chrome-plated aluminium and also function as a mirror.
"The initial idea was to create an object that produces a pleasant indirect light and can reflect the changing sunlight during the day – the passage of clouds and nature – and at the same time emit artificial light when the natural light is gone," Zanuso Jr. explained.
The Babila light is now produced by Marset and described by the brand as a beautiful, attention-drawing object, rather than simply an architectural element.
The product is available in two sizes and three colours: a shiny chrome version as well as more muted ones varnished in brown and white.
Its curved, mirrored shade creates an aura of soft light, which Zanuso Jr. says integrates well into outdoor spaces.
"Outdoor light should always be combined with natural light, this mix is very important and often not considered enough," he explained.
