Akoya

After revisiting one of its best-selling pendants, RBW presents the new and improved Akoya. The original hand-blown, opal glass bulb now boasts increased technical capabilities, as well as more refined perforations to its sheer, spun-aluminum shade. With Akoya’s shades now fabricated in North America, we’ve also cut down our carbon footprint by manufacturing closer to home.

Variety and Versatility

Fine perforations give Akoya’s spun-aluminum shade the look of sheer weightlessness.
