In this new interview series, Shop Talk, we chat with friends and collaborators of Rich Brilliant Willing about the ideas, discoveries, and inspirations that drive their design process.
Here at Rich Brilliant Willing, it’s no secret that we believe in the power of light to create atmosphere, whether at home or in a professional setting. In workplace environments, the right combination of lighting can set the tone and mood of energy and motivation, create a powerful design statement, or soften an office setting into a more intimate and humanist space.
But lighting is just one element of a designed environment—and our products shine brightest in the company of great collaborators. We recently teamed with SERA Architects, Absolute Resource, and ELCOR Electric to integrate Enlighted senors into our Queue pendant with custom sensor technology to monitor energy use, occupancy, and daylighting for a large-scale tech campus in California.
Carissa Mylin, a senior associate at SERA Architects, shares her thinking behind this extensive project and tells us why well-designed workspaces can make or break the creation of a great idea.
