Named to reference its sewn textile construction—the shade body is “all sewn,” offering a slight double entendre—AllSew, a homophone of “also,” connotes an additive quality, as well, suggesting its intended use in a tiled configuration of multiple units.

Rich Brilliant Willing is proud to present their latest statement piece, AllSew, a modular, scalable pendant inspired by the luminosity of lanterns, and the lightweight, collapsible efficiency of kites. AllSew is now on view for a limited time in San Francisco at 835 Larkin Street. Schedule your personal walk-through here.

The large, illuminated volumes of AllSew recall classic Akari paper lanterns, reinterpreted and updated for high-performance needs and everyday use. Intricate details and functional considerations belie its simple form: The interior framework is made from thin, gently pliable rods engineered for strength under tension, and ease of assembly. Compressed for shipping, the shade material retains wrinkles when expanded, adding a warmth of textural richness and lending a diffuse glow. Sailcloth fabric was selected for its extreme durability and luminous quality.
