The Binic Table Lamp has long been on my admired list, but I had no idea that it was so petite. Measuring just 8″ in height, it was intended as more of a ‘take-away’ item, and its easy to move scale provides a very personal sized light. Designer Ionna Vautrin was inspired by windsocks on boats, and if she had to define the lamp in three words, she would say it is “cute, colorful, and small.” Take a look at the video below to see Vautrin discuss the lamp and its inspiration.
