“Co-founded by four friends in 2010, Basil Bangs designs beautiful, quality outdoor products that keep you looking cool and feeling comfortable all year round.
Based on Sydney’s northern beaches, Basil Bangs is headed up by husband-and-wife duo Mike Durante and Krista Huebner and brings together their creativity and passions for product design, surfing, art and textiles.
A love for vintage umbrellas and a pursuit of great design inspired the vision for creating a collection of ‘contemporary classics’, a range of beach umbrellas inspired by the 1960’s and 70’s but decisively modern in engineering and finishes.
Known for distinctive prints rich in colour and unique in artistic expression their approach to design is instinctive and fun, involving regular collaboration with artists and designers from around the world. What began as a modest range of beach umbrellas has since grown into a considered collection of premium outdoor products for both the rain and sun; because the marriage of style, art and great design is for all seasons.
“Not only for the home, Basil Bangs proudly works with the trade and commercial sector, bringing sophisticated shade and custom designs to some of our favourite cafes, restaurants and hotels around Australia.”
