Cheers to 10 Years

RBW

To conclude our 10 year anniversary, we hosted a Dive Bar Crawl around the Lower East Side—the origin of RBW

We could not have reached our 10-year milestone if it was not for the support of our loyal and supportive design partners. As a thank you, we invited our top supporters on a dive bar crawl to revisit some of our former watering holes on a nostalgic walk down memory lane.

We started off at Loreley Beer Garden, a beer garden in the style of Kolsch halls in Cologne that were blocks away from our first studio in a basement in Lower East Side, NY. Ten years ago, the three founders—Theo Richardson, Charles Brill, and Alex Williams, would sit at this beer hall drinking Kolsch while sketching out product ideas on coasters. The “Rich Brilliant Willing” name was also born in the Lower East Side around cofounder Charles' kitchen table.

It was a fun night filled with beers, laughs, and nostalgia. Thank you all for 10 great years and cheers to what the future has in store for RBW for the next 10.

NYCxDesign | Taking Inventory Exhibition

Embracing the ethos of Industry 4.0, RBW reimagines lighting for the 21st-century, pairing beautiful, expressive design with advanced technology and engineering. In our forward-thinking, experimentally-driven approach, the end result is lighting out of the ordinary: statement pieces that take on unprecedented shapes, or staple pieces that make subtle upgrades on familiar forms.
