Responding to the simple brief of ‘Australis’ themed lighting, the Ngooringa pendant is a stylised homage to the spectacular Australian wildflower, the Sturt Desert Pea (indigenously known as the Ngooringa).


This scaled interpretation has been designed with a high-end contemporary aesthetic in mind.


In these prototypes, the glass and metal components were substituted with acrylic, which allowed for experimentation with colour, texture and finishes. Using different materials for the same design creates interesting variance in feeling.


On the ‘petals’, the prismatic texture refracts light and invokes what could be considered a more traditionally beautiful finish, whereas the iridescent finish creates playful layers of colour and reflection that invokes a sense of fun.
