The Baba collection (covered by international copyright from 1992) was designed by the architect Sergio Mian in the October of 1991 and started to be produced by Altek in February 1992. The chair was officially presented for the first time in 1993 at the “Salone del Mobile” in Milan and in 1994. Baba’s stool has become an icon in U.S.A. thanks to the Clint Eastwood performance at the republican convention in Tampa, Florida, the 3rd of September 2012, as he used it as the protagonist of his electoral speech, pretending that on the stool Baba was sitting Mr.Obama to whom he asked some questions, but the stool was empty! And here comes the myth of the famous “Empty Chair”.
The emphasis of the designer on details and to the human body contours, make these seating as the best elegant and choice. Ideal for both commercial and residential settings. The collection has been a huge success all over the world, a success that has lasted for decades. Today can be found the Baba collection in the headquarters of multinational corporations, in cafes, bars, restaurants, many fashionable establishments, and in stylishly furnished homes. The Baba collection has become an icon of contemporary design.
