Description

Santa & Cole's Babel table lamp, designed by Àngel Jové in 1971, is a sculptural art piece and definite conversation-starter. Drawing inspiration from the biblical story of the unfinished tower, the elegant table lamp is crafted in alabaster, solid at the base and hollow for the shade. Owing to the natural variations of its material, each Babel table lamp is completely unique. Characterised by concentric rings at the base and tip, the handcrafted luminaire offers mesmerizing light for a variety of surroundings.

Àngel Jové

Àngel Jové (born 1940) is an artist, designer, professor, author and actor. Jové made an impression on the design community with his use of alabaster, considered a somewhat lesser material in the 1970s. This resulted in designs such as the Babel table lamp, found in the collection of Barcelona-based design curator Santa & Cole.

With roots in Lleida, Catalonia, Jové is known as a noteworthy pioneer of Spain’s Conceptual Art movement. The range of his artistic expression is notable, as his oeuvre also covers painting, graphic design, and illustration. With a knack for experimentation, Jové was first introduced to the world of design by architect-designer Santiago Roqueta.
