Bina Baitel

Bina Baitel is a DPLG architect who graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris La Villette and founded her design and architecture studio in Paris in 2006.
Of French-Swedish origin, she grew up in the Middle East. Nourished by multiple influences, she explores the question of cultural interpenetration on the formal, functional and symbolic levels, in a transdisciplinary approach between art, design and architecture.

Each piece in her collection is on the border between art and design telling a story. Bina Baitel is inviting to a contemplative and interactive experience: palpable immateriality, intelligent surface, tactile light, perception of the invisible, unexpected diversion and moving object, the physical interface of the pieces create unprecedented sensory moments. All this combined with the excellence of French and European craftsmanship.

The Ottoman Sublime (Bina Baitel 2022 collection), from the Latin sublimis “which goes up” or “which stands in the air”, refers both to the impression of levitation of the cushion enhanced by the transparency of the glass, and to the idea of the sublime in the sense of what transcends reality to become an object of wonder.
The fluted glass case produces a play of reflections by refracting the light in space and is generally never used for such types of objects.
This exceptional piece seems to defy the laws of gravity thanks to an extraordinary technical achievement developed in the Glass Variations workshops.

The Helia collection presents slender silhouettes. The undulating glass legs, resembling two ancient Doric half-columns, are topped with a frosted glass tablecloth. The shade and shine fluctuate according to the light.
