Design by Ionna Vautrin, 2010.
By Foscarini.

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.

Material(s): Polycarbonate, Aluminium

Functional and smart

I have enjoyed this light for about a month now and decided to write my first review. Everyone who sees this lamp wants one or more. Charming and contemporary at the same time. Works in any space. Great item and good value.

Very stylish little lamp

I really wanted to love this lamp after I read about the designer's inspiration for creating it, but alas, I found it impractical. That said, I think it would work great in a kids room as a sort of night light, and I adore the color palette. I found it difficult to remove the face of the lamp to insert the bulb (which is not included).
If you're looking for a playful lamp for a spot where you don't require a lot of light, go for it.

We love this lamp. It is beautifully designed (primary reason for buying it) and very subtle. Loved the inspiration for it.
It's been perfect for the baby's room. The light that come's out of it is actually quite strong for its size. Love that it swivels so that you can turn it to "dim" the light a bit but repositioning it. The color range is also great (we have the white and orange).

However, i can't give it a perfect 5star because it does fall quite easily. It can be knocked over easily due to the small base and heavier "head" ...even by simply touching the cable. Not a huge deal but once the kid starts to walk we'll have to move it for sure.

But all in all we love it!

Colorful hip design lamp

Beautiful packaging and great color (as sold). The only problem is that the light bulb needed is on a European standards and is hard to find. Should be sold with light bulb to facilitate the installation.

Beautiful design, but it falls all the time. Not functional at all :(

This lamp is really pretty and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it in a shop, the colors are really nice and the design sweet.

BUT beware:

1) it will fall all the time face down, as soon as you touch the cable. It's so unstable that it fell at least 15 times in one year, although I'm very careful with it. I had to change the bulb each time. The base is tight and the top faces forward, which makes it unstable by nature.

2) Removing the lid to change the bulb became so challenging with the time that I need a suction cup now.

3) Don't buy if you need it to read as it faces down and it will only lighten the surface on which the lamp is placed.

In other words it's just a beautiful design object, not a functional product at all.
