Showing new work at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan this week is the Swedish studio Andréason & Leibel, which will introduce, among other items, the elegant Babylon Tower Desk. Taking inspiration from The Tower of Babel, as depicted by the 16th Century Flemish painter, Bruegel, this considerably more linear tower is constructed from slender pieces of lacquered larch wood, and, amazingly can be deconstructed and flat-packed, Ikea style. We especially like the gentle, graduating shades of color—and those curious porcelain skulls on display aren’t random props. They’re also Andréason & Leibel creations, being unveiled in Milan—but more on those later!
