Bibelo - Swim collection

Swimming pool ladders inspire tubular furniture

The curved handles of swimming pool ladders inspired the tubular frames of this furniture collection produced by French brand Bibelo.

Called Swim, the collection includes a bar stool with an oval backrest that’s mounted just below the peak of a tubular arch. The backrest curves round gently and sticks out on either side of the frame like a pair of ears. Made from steel, the stool coated in an epoxy paint so you can use it outdoors, and it comes in two different heights.

The collection also includes a lounge and dining chair with the same oval backrests and tubular frames. There’s a coffee and side table as well, with legs that look like they pierce through the tabletops to create curved handles on the surface.

Created by Paris designer Margaux Keller, the collection comes in seven different colours ranging from what Bibelo is calling "lava rock black" to cotton candy pink.
