Banksia is a series of floor, table and pendant lights developed from an investigation into Australian native flora.
Australian design can be shy when it comes to the use of our native species but it wasn’t always so. Sometimes beauty is right before your eyes but you have to know where to look and what to look for.
Designed by Ben Elbourne, Banksia light creates an appreciation for what inspires him every day and brings this form to both those who may have missed it and those who know it alike. The design takes an abstracted two dimensional pattern, derived from a flower that blends into its environment and is hidden from human perspective, translating it back into a three dimensional form.
Banksia lights are available in 2 sizes – Standard 300 x 225mm and Mini 200 x 150mm. Both sizes feature a standard bayonet fitting and can be used as floor, table and pendant lamps. Available in brushed aluminium and powder coated mild steel in orange, white, blue and yellow. Other colours can be arranged. Custom sizes can also be developed.
Available to purchase through the studio. For pricing and inquiries please send us an email inquiries(at)thefortynine.com.au
