Just In: Foscarini Binic Lamp In New Colors For Spring

In Fall 2011 I traveled to Venice on a press trip sponsored by Italian lighting company Foscarini, as a representative for contemporary design site Design Milk, for which I used to work as an editor. Foscarini hosted a handful of international bloggers and lighting designers at their offices for the day and brought us on a guided tour of the Venice Biennale (you can see my Venice Biennale 2011 photos here).

Not only did I meet incredibly talented designers, including Ionna Vautrin, designer of the adorable Foscarini Binic lamp, Luca Nichetto who designed the Stewie, and  Jozeph Forakis who designed the Tivu and Havana lamps, I also bonded with bloggers I wouldn’t have otherwise met, like Micle Mihai-Cristian of contemporary design site Freshome. The Foscarini folks recorded little videos of all us speaking about design concepts, which I posted here.

Vautrin dubbed her little table lamp by Foscarini “Binic” after a tiny lighthouse off the rocky coast of Brittany. Foscarini will be debuting the Binic lamp in fresh, new colors for spring, at Salone Del Mobile in Milan next month, and they will be available in the States in early June. In the meantime, the Foscarini Binic lamp is currently available in six colors.

I’m crazy about the mint color, it’s the perfect hue for this whimsical silhouette. The yellow Binic would make the perfect pop of color in a grey, white, or blue room. As for the pale pink and grey, well these Binics are the perfect shades to complement the model apartment I’m decorating in Boston. Perhaps I need to incorporate one.

Get the Look: 40 Modern Copper Home Accessories

At this rate I may tire of copper before I acquire a single piece. (Although I already own copper wastebasket I bought from the Martha Stewart catalog and have been using for years in our powder room.) A month ago I featured 24 rooms with copper pendants here on StyleCarrot, followed up by a dozen rooms with copper pendants on Design Milk, and a dozen copper accessories. Expanding on the copper accessories roundup, here are 40 modern copper home furnishings finds. And be sure to see my 20 copper picks on Houzz later this month too. Told you.

“Good Design” at Foscarini

This fall I started contributing to Design Milk, a refreshingly sleek and focused contemporary design blog founded and run by Jaime Derringer. Lighting company Foscarini invited us to Venice, and since Jaime was about to have a baby, I got to go. It was an amazing trip. Foscarini hosted a handful of bloggers from design sites all over Europe at its corporate offices for a day of discovery and discussion. At the end, they put together this video in which we all put forth the single most important aspect of “good design.” Watch us speak.

The words we chose . . .

“PROCESS” Luca Nichetto, designer (Venice)
“SINCERITY”  Ionna Vautrin, designer (Paris)
“LOVE”  Vicente Garcia Jimenez, designer (Udine, Italy)
VITALITY” Marni Katz, Design Milk (Boston)
“FORM” Jenny Filipetti, Design Boom (Milan)
“EMOTION” Micle Mihai Cristian, Freshome (Romania)
“TEAMWORK”  Costas Voyatzis, Yatzer (Athens, Greece)
“SINGULARITY”  Eric Foulon, Muuuz (Paris)
“TECHNOLOGY”  Philipp Thom, Studio 5555 (Germany)
“RESEARCH” Giuilia Zappa, Designer Blog (Milan)
