This year to celebrate the holidays and to give a big thank you to some of our top clients, we invited them into our showroom for a night of live music, specialty cocktails, and great company. Hanging from the ceiling as a vine-like structure was our most recent statement piece - Vitis, a dramatically draped statement chandelier combining light, translucency and fluidity of form.

Dim-to-Dark Technology

August 21, 2018

As part of our constantly growing list of premium features, RBW is excited to introduce Dim-to-Dark technology.

Shown above: Queue Sconce 24 in Natural finish with 0-10V control

Smooth dimming from 100% to 0.1% is achieved through the use of eldoLED Drivers which minimize the flicker commonly seen in LED lighting fixtures. Natural and gradual changes in brightness occur smoothly from 0.1% brightness, which looks nearly off to the human eye, and ranges to 100% brightness.

The Vitis collection explores seamless integration of lighting via recessed and concealed components to complement the precise control offered by Dim-to-Dark technology. The remote driver allows for sleek application in a wide array of architectural spaces. Working together, these facets of cutting edge technology create a flawless, flicker-free dimming experience.

Explore premium dimming in our linear collections, Branch and Queue, as well as our latest Statements collection, Vitis.

IP Rated Lighting

August 09, 2018

Rich Brilliant Willing is proud to offer IP rated light fixtures for interior and exterior applications.

IP ratings are given to fixtures after rigorous laboratory testing. It verifies how protected a fixture is within damp or wet settings while determining if water can get inside a fixture which could cause potential damage. It also determines the permeability of dust. Fixtures are rated on how impervious their surfaces are to solid and liquid, from fingers and small drops of water to fine dust and full submergence.

 

Zone 2 refers to fixtures that could withstand wet settings while Zone 1 is subjected to fixtures that can withstand damp settings (See Image above). For lighting next vanities, IP 44 and above is recommended and Branch, Crisp, Dimple and Chip are great products to address these needs.

IP ratings are available in a number of RBW fixtures. For further Light Reading on Understanding IP Certification. For inquiries and further information, feel free to reach out sales@richbrilliantwilling.com.

NYCxDesign Week Party

May 29, 2018

As a break from our previous product presentations, we showcased our new explorations in OLED and 3D knitting technology to present a conceptual lighting installation for NYCxDesign week. “Light Inflection,” an installation that explores the possibilities of OLED technology during this past New York Design week. Located in the studio’s SoHo showroom, the installation includes five experimental lighting concepts based on our laboratory research on OLEDs, or organic light-emitting diodes. OLEDs are an emerging source of illumination that resemble thin sheets of light. On the forefront of LED technology, they have, until now, gone largely unexplored in the world of lighting design. To close off NYCxDesign week, we hosted a party to not only give our guests a first look of "Light Inflection" in our showroom but to also celebrate the publication of Studio O+A: Twelve True Tales of Workplace Design just out from FRAME Publishers for a night of drinks and canapés. 

 

 

RBW x Dezeen Panel

May 18, 2018

To kick off NYCxDesign Week, we hosted "Life on the Technological Frontier of Design", a panel discussion moderated by Dezeen US editor, Dan Howarth. We invited a group of manufacturers, architects, lighting and interior designers who have presented themselves as thought-leaders in their fields to discuss and converse on how technological advancement in materials, manufacturing and application have provoked and changed their design thinking.

Vitis Preview in San Francisco

May 15, 2018

RBW celebrated the debut of the newest statement piece, Vitis, a dramatically draped statement chandelier combining light, translucency and fluidity of form. We invited our top reps and VIP clients for a 2-day launch of fun, food, and drinks to be the first to view Vitis in it’s true form. Named Vitis, after the Latin origin of vineyard, the vine-like structure has attributes of glass, brilliance, sparkle, translucency and luminosity.

On day one of our launch, we introduced our new versatile and flexible statement collection to our guests to demonstrate our experimental approach to materials and construction in lighting design. To keep to the theme of transparency, we served our guests a custom menu of food and cocktails that complimented the orbs of Vitis. 

We closed off our second day of the launch by throwing a party to celebrate our first West Coast debut. Simplicity, technology and creativity come together in this design and engineering marvel. Vitis is an achievement in lighting for atmosphere, sculptural form and translucent materiality unseen in any other product.
