Small but full of personality, Binic irresistibly draws attention with its friendly, poetic and slightly cartoon shape, projecting a focussed light downwards, like your own private lighthouse. It has a simple yet surprising architecture: the upper rounded volume with its shiny finish and the conical satin base appear to challenge the force of gravity and yet the light is perfectly stable, as the difference in weight is only visual.
Ionna has produced a range of 6 colors for Binic. An extremely wide range of colors for a designer product, that can be placed in differently decorated environments but, above all, can match the personality of whoever chooses his or her Binic.
Compact, fun, multicolored and accessible, from young environments to the home studio or a day or night space. As a 'take away' object, a present or a personal object of desire. In a packaging that is just as special and fun, with the color of the light and its unmistakable shape.
Born in France in 1979, Ionna Vautrin graduated from L'école de design Nantes Atlantique in 2002. She worked successively for Camper in Spain, and by the Studios of George J. Sowden in Italy and of Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec in France. At the same time she develops her own works with different design companies: first time with Industreal in Milan, then with the Tools Galerie in Paris and since 2010 with Foscarini.
