Design Concept - Pastille

With the bold geometric patterns of its glass surface accented by metal backings, Pastille’s design echoes the Art Deco sensibilities of Old Hollywood. The collection offers mix-and-match options for custom installation, including either a droplet profile or faceted pattern for the glass globe, with various finishes for an accent ring or back plate.

Named Pastille due to its candy-like form, this is a collection that explores the unique opal glass design with ribbed texture, faceted profile and domed surface.

Key Talking Points - Pastille

  • Unique Glass Design: The challenge with opal glass is how to achieve even illumination. The glass textures and designs of Pastille exhibit great attention to detail and vendor craftmanship that achieves a soft even glow.
  • Mix-and-Match Variance: The range of glass styles, back plate designs and finish is meant to empower the designers to mix and match to create their desired assemble. This allows each install to be unique.
  • Custom Lettering: Pastille is one of collections that allow hand paint, vinyl lettering and even braille, making it suitable for large hospitality projects.
  • Premium Performance Staple (coming soon): Pastille will be one of RBW's first Staple to offer premium dimming capability. We are looking to achieve Smooth 0.1% - 100% dimming using ERP driver compatible with a DC board.

Design Concept - Chip

As an evolution from customer feedback from continued request of making larger Crisp sconces, the Chip is a linear cousin to RBW's best seller

Chip is a surface-mounted fixture with the familiar grooves that extend the surface area its light can reach. Scoring Chip’s clear, solid glass body and painted interior, the grooves also add a textural quality to its minimalist design. Installation options include with or without a square mounting plate.
