Harry & Camila
Designed by Harry & Camila, BABYLON represents DEDON’s first collection of garden vases. The selection features irregular surfaces and asymmetrical forms created by computer. Produced in a special type of ceramic, the vases are elegantly slanted and available in three different sizes. When turned upside down, they resemble the Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel.
Harry & Camila
Dutch industrial designer Harry Hpj van Ierssel (1966) and his partner in life and design, the Cuban-born Chilean Camila vega Faba (1971), first met in 1994 at the Domus Academy in Milan. They gained their practical experience working in the studios of such renowned Italian designers as Matteo Thun, Guido Venturini and Stefano Giovannoni before founding their own studio, the aptly named ‘Harry&Camila’, in 1998.
The following year, the couple drew international attention at the Milan furniture fair, where one of their textile designs was selected for the International Design Yearbook, No. 15. In 2002 Harry & Camila relocated their studio to Barcelona, where they’ve become an important part of that city’s vibrant design scene. The duo began their collaboration with DEDON in 2006, with the creation of the Zofa Lounge Chair XXL, an innovative collection of seemingly free-floating seating forms, which won a Good Design Award in 2008. In addition to their work with DEDON, Harry&Camila have developed products for Alessi, Living Divani, Rosenthal, Covo, Fontana Arte, Koziol and Abet Laminati.
