The Materials

The Forest Lantern is made from only three materials: stamped steel, plastic, and rubber. Durable in nature, they can withstand years of use—from the backyard to the backcountry. Stamped steel protects the interior lighting cover while still keeping the design lightweight and practical.

The Inspiration

Design inspired by nautical, vintage caged lanterns that provided much-needed light when navigating difficult terrain and conditions, both in the forest and at sea. Metal caging protected the delicate, historically glass globe and helped increase functionality. Typically hooked at the top with a rubber bottom, these lanterns could be hung for elevated lighting or placed on surfaces when the user needed both hands for a job.

The Design

We took all the classic components of the vintage caged lantern and added modern functionality and high-quality output. The rechargeable battery, with adjustable brightness, mimics the warmth of a fueled flame on a wick. Durable stamp steel pays homage to the original construction with added protection. Details in the nameplate and charging lights elevate the aesthetic and make it an iconic piece in the Barebones lighting collection. Use it to navigate your own difficult terrain or simply illuminate a card game in the backyard; this light is meant for all to enjoy.
