Babylon by Samuel Wilkinson Studio for Lexon

Updated: Jan 22, 2020

The aim this project was to create an aesthetic, tactile set of objects that work as well in the office as in the home. Each object had to have its own character and individuality, but still look coherent in a group. Samuel and his team analysed standard variations of each of the objects and their individual functions, then initially created soft forms that were compact, tactile and efficient. The 3d outlines around the shape were then re-skinned to create the final objects. The main inspiration for the forms was rock strata. The Babylon range is produced in a soft touch matte finish and is made from thick injection moulded ABS for strength and durability.
