Company

 

The story of Binova began in an artisan workshop.  It started with Giovanni and Francesco Bolletta, who from a very tender age learned how to work wood with precision, appreciate its qualities and recognise its spirit while working at shops of various carpenters in Assisi. Giovanni added further to his craftsman’s skills at General Motors by acquiring specialised knowledge of high-powered car bodies, which then enhanced with in-depth knowledge of mechanics and advanced technologies. This marked the start of Binova and its story as an Umbrian company in the world of high-quality kitchens.

Fifty years of research and design are the guarantee that extraordinary care is given to the choice of materials, processing techniques and production systems for Binova furnishing solutions, while close collaboration with architects and designers of renowned prestige ensure a taste for a sophisticated contemporary look that is also ergonomic and functional. The company’s artisan past, inherited from the family tradition, and its constant search for quality in every detail, from the interior finishes to the raw materials, blend together perfectly in a kitchen space with simple, elegant forms. Aesthetics, which are always at the service of functionality, combine with technology leaving the right amount of space to the potential of innovation.

Modular configurations, laid against the wall or arranged as an island, are placed with grace and simplicity, returning the scene to the person who lives in it as the central focus. The space maintains a formal purity and intangible lightness where one can deftly move around amidst taste, flavours and the senses. Always an expression of spatial continuity, the kitchen environments contribute to a household organisation that seeks to maintain the order needed for the preparation of dishes, while compactness and solidity, the heart and spirit of Binova kitchen furnishings, allow rigorously elegant Italian design to emerge in a flowing, unexpected way, guaranteeing, overall, quality unaffected by the passing of time.

1958

 

Binova has been engaged in the manufacture of kitchen environments since 1958, exploring the potential of wood and mechanics, aware of innovations and the opportunities presented by progress, but at the same time respectful of the value of experience and work over time. Kitchen environments that follow the evolution of daily life, resolving functional problems with new forms and reliable materials and with contemporary designs exclusive to Binova.

A cultural challenge, and also a technological one, resolved by complicated manufacturing processes with a bias towards new materials, thanks also to our research and development centre. Over the years Binova has been responsible for many important and groundbreaking inventions and patents.

 

Green

 

We have covered over 15,000 square metres with photovoltaic panels and turned our entire plant into a symbol of environmental awareness. As a result, our company is now 100% energy self-sufficient. We build kitchens by harnessing the sun’s energy, which enables us to save 600 tons of oil a year and cut our CO2 emissions by 2,000 tons.
Each processing phase must prove its ability to comply with the standards of our acquired certifications, namely UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 concerning international quality management standards.

Above all, we also boast the F4 (F-Four Star) certification awarded to companies that comply with the highly stringent Japanese standards. These achievements underline our desire to preserve and enhance the beauty of forests and to produce cleaner air.
