Binic imparts empathy and it convinces with an independent character. As a gift idea or for the personal use Binic is affordable and versatile: a real “Take-Away” product or “Love at first sigh”, like the young designer Ionna Vautrin would say.
Binic is small but full of strong personality. With its pleasant, poetic and a little caricature-looking form it attracts all attention irresistibly. Binic projects a soft light that acts like a private lighthouse: angularly downwards. The light does not shine directly from the illuminant, but it is damped by a board.
Binic possesses an aluminium foot and a polycarbonate shade. The upper round volume with a glossy surface and a satined cone base seems to be gravity resistant. Despite this, Binic is completely stable because the weight difference is only a visual effect.
The designer Ionna Vautrin designed a range of six colours to offer a wider dimension to the lamp like this. White, green, red, orange, petrol, grey: a wide colour tone range for a design product, to be integrated in every furnishing style but overall, this was made to suit every personality that chose Binic.
Ionna Vautrin was inspired by her origin region, the Bretagne, its sea and her sea travelling for Binic. The main inspiration for the small lamp was given by the wind bags from the boats. The word “Binic” itself is the designation for a lighthouse at the coast in the Bretagne.
