It’s that time of year again. The leaves have changed colour, fallen from the trees, and the first snows have begun to visit us here in Switzerland. As we finish out another productive year, Baola is proud to unveil its latest artist collaboration: Baola X Studio Proba In the past year, we have teamed up with the renowned Portland and Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary design studio, Studio Proba, to launch two new exciting editions of Baola: Play Time and Soft Serve Both designs are a result of a collaboration that combine Studio Proba’s vision for exploring the world through colour, sense and texture, with Baola’s vision for elevating the interior spaces of the home and office to artfully-influenced, tasteful surroundings that inspire and energize the mind and soul. In a year when many of us have been working from home — and where many will continue to do so well into the upcoming year — Baola’s ergonomic functionality, along with its unique design aesthetic, is perfect for upgrading your space with a splash of colour. But that’s not all. In addition to launching these two exciting new designs in collaboration with Studio Proba, we’ve also upgraded the materials with which the Baola X Studio Proba edition itself is made. Some of our feature upgrades to this edition include: Two different sizes: 50-55cm and 60-65cm (depending on desired inflation) 100% fully recycled fabric used for each ball cover. We use German Trevia fabric, which is made from 100% recycled and repurposed polyester fabric. This way, you can be assured that each Swiss ball is made as sustainably as possible. This fabric is furniture-quality, meaning that it is strong and textured, as well as flame-retardant. Additionally, the recycled polyester fabric was specifically chosen for its ability to resist dirt and particles from collecting on the ball cover. Upgraded fabric cutting & stitching. A new, improved fabric cutting and stitching process reduces folds in each cover, making each Baola Swiss ball look even better and more luxurious with particular attention to detail. The fabric cover no longer features a zipper; instead, the fabric cover has been redesigned to self-close at the bottom of each Swiss ball, ensuring improved uniformity. Updated premium packaging uses high-quality paper sourced from Europe, meaning that Baola is easily given as a gift in the box in which it arrives. The user manual is also thoughtfully designed on premium cardstock. Each Baola Swiss ball is now weighted at the bottom, for better stability. No more worries of it rolling away! As always, Baola remains 100% made in Europe, with high-quality European materials. We pride ourselves on offering a fully European-made product. Each design in the Baola X Studio Proba retails for £165 / €195 / USD$225. You can purchase our products directly here on the website, or in Rinascente retail stores across Italy. We hope that this festive season, you choose to bring artfulness and inspiration to your holiday shopping with Baola.
