Murex is all about asymmetry and achieving the impossible. Designed by Robert Foster, the Murex light is based on the astonishing 3D spiralled forms created by molluscs. The name Murex is taken directly from a species of molluscs that make particularly beautiful shells. We believe this simple design is equally astounding as it is formed from one piece of acrylic sheet using a totally unique process recently developed by F!NK.
We try to develop innovative production processes so that we can offer new objects and designs that add to and inspire our living environment. Murex possess a simple elegance and beauty, much like the shell fragments you find on the beach — but instead of the sound of the ocean your hear when you hold a shell to your ear, the Murex emits the soft glow of light!
The globe is very easy to change and the open form of the design won’t catch insects over time and become unsightly. Murex comes in frosted white and red acrylic.
Dimensions: 700mm in length with standard 2 metre cord
Materials: Red acrylic or satin ice Plexiglas with compact fluorescent globe.
Designed and made in Australia.

F!NK + Co. was founded in 1993 to manufacture beautifully-designed and innovative household objects, and developed as an off-shoot from Robert Foster’s internationally-renowned work as an Artist and Silversmith. F!NK has also become a production house for an increasing pool of young designers, and is a name synonymous with spirited and distinctive Australian design. Renowned for its iconic ‘Water Jug’, F!NK + Co. has grown its brand over the past twenty years to include over 30 products. Having ventured into the realm of lighting from time to time, F!NK now proudly offers a distinctive and clever range of commercial and domestic lighting.
We started designing and making our first lights in 1999, however this comprehensive new range is evidence of our determination and commitment to pioneer inspiring products that challenge the narrative of overseas design. We strive to create bold, innovative work that has that distinctive style of simplicity, elegance and ease of use. We have continued our signature use of bold colour and refined the style of our forms, so they fit and enhance many genres of architecture. Designed for both commercial and domestic settings, this stunning range includes a number of pendant lights, a modern day chandelier, table lights, a standing light and sculptural wall lighting. Each design radiates its own persona, reflecting the strength of F!NK’s distinctive design.
Whilst embracing and reinventing the urban and utilitarian, F!NK is shamelessly unafraid of running with quirkiness and frivolity to capture the heart and imagination. As part of our stance on sustainability and environmental responsibility, all of our products are made in Australia. We have developed many of these new designs specifically for the commercial market and believe that the price range and style of our products will enliven and value-add to many public and private environs.
F!NK prides itself on the promise of modern design excellence, uniting the utmost respect for the design ethic, the quality craftsmanship of yesterday’s artisans, the innovation of modern manufacturing techniques and the wit and rigor of designer-founder Robert Foster.
