The artists behind Baola
Find out more about the creative minds we collaborate with. They help make every Baola Edition a work of art.
Alex Proba, who is well-known for her work designing the Life In Vogue Installation, a new iteration of the iconic Louis Vuitton trunk, and for her AYR mural on Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA, has collaborated with Baola to design and produce the two new Baola products, bringing her signature visual style to the design of the classic Swiss ball. Proba’s creativity explores emotion as a celebration of color, pattern and positive stimulation of the senses. The designer draws from the everyday for her designs and artwork: visuals, sounds, smells and memories.
