Babah, by Chairs&More, have played a leading role in the recent refurbishment of the Library Events Room in the renowned Palais des Nations at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva.
The large conference room hosts a wide variety of events bringing together members of the international community to exchange information and ideas. Ready to accommodate the Geneva public are a couple of hundred Babah chairs, purposely selected for this project by architect Federica Perrini.
The majestic hall of the Palais des Nations library is characterised by elements, that though few in number, are powerfully suggestive. They also serve to tone down the austere architecture, giving rise to an airy, comfortable environment.
A large painting by Henrik Sørensen dating back to 1939, dominates the room from inside a niche behind the dais, while countless bookcases line the walls. At the centre, the Babah chairs in all white give substance to the floor and illuminate the whole room. A delicate play of light seems to highlight the iconic back of this chair, crafted in pressed polyurethane - this elegant and sophisticated detail gives the illusion of an upholstered frame. Light and practical, Babah was the perfect solution for this project.
