BINOCLE is the office led by Italian architect Lorenzo Bini since 2011.
Born in 1971, educated in Milan and Oslo, Lorenzo graduated in 1998 from Politecnico di Milano and worked for different offices in Milan and Rotterdam until 2003 when he co-founded studiometrico, his former practice that ceased business in 2011 after 8 years of shared partnership.
BINOCLE works on the transformation of existing spaces shifting from temporary structures to permanent buildings and gardens.
Beside his professional activity, Lorenzo is teaching at Politecnico and Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan and was visiting professor at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
Conceived as a domestic and a monumental place at the same time, our stand for Tacchini at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile accompanies the visitor through a sequence of rooms of different shapes and sizes, a series of protected spaces in continuous communication with each other and with the outside. Since the most important piece presented by Tacchini during the design week was Mario Bellini’s Le Mura we got inspired by the furniture name to define a modular unit - a large ideal brick - and to endlessly repeat it on every vertical surface as a decorative masonry pattern.
