Recycled Aluminium Art – Astrit Binaj

Astrit Binaj was born in 1958 in Vlora (AL), where he learnt the mastery of wood from artisan workshops, in the field of art and modeling. In the 90s he moved to Italy where he devoted himself to the creation of stylish furniture and the restoration of antiques. He lives near Milan between old furnitures and design with artistic experiments.

The plots project comes from the constant research of a new aesthetic expression, promoted through a material which he  approched after 40 years of woodworking: aluminium.

By blending old craft techniques and compositions, such as weaving and marquetry, aluminum is given a new lease of life with reuse and redevelopment of items that are no longer useful
