Francesco Binfaré: Top Italian Interior Designers

Francesco Binfaré:

Top Italian Interior Designers

Francesco Binfaré was born in Milan in 1939. He spent the war years with his family in a village in Valtellina, a place that encouraged him to contemplate and observe nature. Thanks to his father, he learned to draw and paint during that period. In 1960, at the age of twenty-one, he met the Cassina brothers, founders of the design and furniture company in Meda bearing their name.

Francesco Binfaré’s encounter enabled him to come into contact with industrial production. Drawing thus became an instrument of disciplinary inquiry into the archetypes of design and architecture. The cycle of graphic works produced between 1967 and 1980 (including Il Gigante e l’ombra or La colpa e l’architettura), prefiguried the central themes of post-modernism.

Binfaré jokingly declared that Cesare Cassina commissioned him to become “the architect of his architects”. Indeed, a characteristic of his role at Cassina was to have worked alongside the creators of innovative objects that would become successful icons of Italian design without aspiring to his personal prominence. His dynamic and creative spirit led him to direct the Cesare Cassina Centre, a design workshop to which he transferred his processes of artistic practice.

There Francesco Binfaré investigated new methods, facilitating individual and collective design. This context gave light to Vico Magistretti’s Maralunga, Gaetano Pesce’s Up 5 and Sit Down Mario Bellini’s Bambole, and Archizoom’s AeO. During this period, he coordinated projects for the historic MoMA exhibition “Italy: New Domestic Landscape” (1972) and carried out research trips to India, the United States, and Japan (1970-1973).

In parallel to his collaboration with Cassina, he promoted personal initiatives. In 1973, Francesco Binfaré founded “Braccio di Ferro” with Gaetano Pesce and Alessandro Mendini for the limited-series production of avant-garde objects.

Investigating the infinite possibilities of new media in design, in 1974, Francesco Binfaré created Environmedia with Mario Bellini and Pierpaolo Saporito. In 1980, he founded Design and Communication Centre to promote such projects as Cab by Mario Bellini, Wink by Toshiyuki Kita, and Sunset in New York by Gaetano Pesce.

In 1992, Massimo Morozzi – an architect and designer among the founders of Archizoom – invited Francesco Binfaré to join Edra’s design team.
