Rakumba is the first light.
We are a committed group of thinkers, designers, makers, artisans and engineers devoted to the creation of beautiful decorative lighting.
For fifty years, we have been making beauty. Today, our strength is drawn from the integration of lighting design with our expert knowledge of each stage of producing great lights. We are proud of our traditional craft and artisan abilities. We share our mastery of technology and manufacturing willingly in true collaborations. Our attention to detail is well known, we have an ardent desire to refine and perfect.
We are an integral part of the design community, continually seeking new connections. We are a forum to exchange ideas and expertise for the designers with whom we engage and whose projects we champion. We are active mentors to a new generation of emerging designers and students of design.
Rakumba is a leading Australian manufacturer of custom-made lighting objects and installations.
