From 1967 up to 1980 Francesco Binfaré created a series of drawings that formed the analogical basis of his research.
In order to pursue his research, he travelled to India, the USA and Japan. He supported experimental initiatives such as Braccio di ferro for an edition of avant-garde prototypes and as Environmedia to promote the use of interactive media in project practices.
In 1980 he set up his own Design and Communication Centre and worked for Cassina, Marcatrè, De Padova and Venini .
In 1992, as he was finishing a series of huge paintings called “Tracce emozionali domestiche” – “Traces of domesticated emotions” he was invited by Massimo Morozzi to design for Edra.
Cologne Furniture Fair in 1993, determined the beginning of a successful collaboration with Edra and the start of a singular and fascinating period rich with stimuli and invention, as seen in products such as Flap, On the Rocks, Sfatto, and with sofas such as Sherazade, Sofa, Standard, where the combinations of idea and technique can reach extreme levels of quality.
