Bina Baitel, DPLG Architect, graduated from the National School of Architecture of Paris La Villette and founded her eponymously named agency in Paris in 2006.
Of Franco-Swedish origin, the designer grew up in the Middle East. Enriched about many influences, she explores the question of cultural interpenetration on the formal, functional and symbolic plans. She uses a transdisciplinary approach, between art, design and architecture. By doing so Bina Baitel cultivates experimentation to transform abstract concepts into objects or spaces.
Bina Baitel Collection is a selection of exceptional objects at the border of art and design. Each piece tells a story that materializes through a dedicated plastic expression and generates new typologies of objects. The designer questions our relationships and interactions with the objects that surround us. She explores their common codes to propose concepts with strong inspirations in which uses and allegories confront each other.
The collection is characterized by an invitation to contemplative and interactive experiences. Palpable immateriality, intelligent surface, tactile light, perception of the invisible, unexpected detour and moving object, the material interface of the pieces create new sensory moments. Highly crafted creations that express the strong creative freedom of the designer associated with the excellence of the crafts. A constant dialogue between traditional know-how and innovative experimentation.
Her projects have been shown in museums and international trade fairs across the globe including Milan, Dubai, Paris, New York, Venice, Basel … Some of her creations have been purchased by the permanent collections of museums, foundations, and National Funds for Contemporary Art.
Her work has won numerous prizes including the VIA’s Aides à la Création in 2008, the Grand Prix de la Création of the City of Paris in 2012 and the First Prize of the Cité Internationale de la Tapestry d’Aubusson. In 2013 Bina Baitel was selected for the VATEX program and in 2014 she created furniture for the international high school of the island of Nantes, which led to a 2015 prize awarded by the VIA Label and the National Committee for Wood Construction.
In 2019, Bina Baitel receives the FD100 Award by The French Design who recognises her international influence.
