Design by Ionna Vautrin, 2010.
Binic is inspired by the world of the sea and the shape recalls windsocks - aeration systems on boats. These shapes evoke other figures: a loudspeaker, a cartoon character, an animal or a totem.
Table lamp with aluminum base and polycarbonate projector. The base conceals ballast that acts as a counterweight to the large volume of the upper part of the lamp, giving it stability and high quality makes Binic both a lamp and a design object. Binic arrives in its own special decorative packaging and is available in six different colors.
Binic is a real lamp that exploits the power of compact fluorescence to the full. The ray of light is functional to the activity of the individual: a personal light that focuses on a defined area with a strong, warm, intensity. The special packaging underlines the idea of an 'easy take-away' in terms of design, color, and light. With Binic, personal light goes beyond a soft glow.
