Basil Bangs is an Australian company born of a love for all things outdoors.

What started as two mates re-designing the humble beach umbrella in 2010, Basil Bangs’ range of signature prints and well-crafted umbrellas protect and shade you no matter if you’re on the beach or at the pub – and everywhere in between!

We aim for our products to work seamlessly and with style, using premium fabrications and fixtures. And where they don’t exist already, we’re not afraid to design our own – like the Basil Hinge.

Basil Bangs embodies what we love in life: laughing with friends and family, spending lazy summer days at the beach and beautiful design.

Our design office is based in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia.


Yes, but who is Basil Bangs?

Well, the man is an enigma and like mercury, he’s very hard to pin down. But in short – he’s an idea, a spirit. He is an amalgam of a couple of real life characters who inspire us, our products and guide our philosophy. We like to think of them when we ask ourselves the question “what would Basil do?”. For the record, Basil usually says “do it” (he’s just that kind of guy).
