TORU www.toru.barcelona

TORU is a young craft and design company that produce beautiful, simple design furniture with exquisite materials. All the products are handmade by local artisans, and are either unique or produced in small series. Made in quality leather, produced locally with the highest standards of craftsmanship and using vegetable tanned leather only. Founded in 2015 by Jordi Ribaudí, the company is based in Igualada, Barcelona, a town with deep roots in the leather industry. The headquarters is located in a restored nineteenth century tannery. Toru’s passion is to make the most of leather in furniture design.

Babu is a nomadic chair. You can fly on a carpet or chill on the sand while sitting in it. Its design is inspired by the great journeys of the desert tribes, during which men feel close to the earth, rest on it and merge with the landscape. Babu is a spot for relaxation and meditation; a place to rest, a shelter. Babu takes shape from a single 6mm-thick leather piece, which folds back on itself to create the backrest. Some small brass feet keep the structure together. The leather, vegetable-tanned and wax finished, is available in four different aniline colours: natural, brown, hazelnut, and black. The seat cushion is available in cotton velvet and leather.
