Banksia, named after the fire coloured Australian wildflower, is a lamp designed for Australia’s love of outdoor entertaining. Banksia brings light and ambiance to a setting, with the added ability to burn insect repelling oils. It was inspired by childhood gatherings surrounded by bamboo torches, with a desire to bring an updated aesthetic to this product, at a scale in-line with portable electronic lighting.

Banksia is constructed from a formed wire cage and a spun reservoir, diffuser, and glass column. The curved wire references the cages of early oil lamps, however is re-proportioned to enclose the reservoir, support the diffuser and serve as a carry handle.
