“Our goal is to keep our vintage lamps in use forever and help our planet together with you”Gijs Buis – Founder BINK Lampen
BINK committed to illuminating Circular Design
BINK began in 2014, rejuvenating timeless designs from the early 20th century for future generations. To make it economically viable and to be able to respond to the growing demand, BINK entered into dealerships and importers of designs that originated from that era and are still in production. In addition, they initiated this project to make the circular economy possible and avoid overconsumption while providing their customers with the best service available. As a result, the various lighting units that they repaired, refurbished, and recertified by its experts are repositioned on the market. This is their commitment to sustainability, effectively keeping the lights out of landfills and in perpetual use.
Furthermore, after binding forces in 2018 with the city of Leiden, BINK can safely secure all street lighting that tended to be destroyed for the sake of re- and upcycling.
BINK is not only constantly looking for partners to expand and diversify in this particular field due to growing requests, but it is also currently planning on transitioning to lock in a location in 2022 for a one-stop store for storage, repair, and exhibition in close adjacency to Randstad (the four largest Dutch cities: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, and Utrecht) and deliver low-power electronics education tutoring programs at BINK’s lighting circle point.
