Originally designed in collaboration with Sister City for a custom fixture version featuring clear glass and a white-painted interior, Dimple is a compact and dimmable, flush-mounted sconce that casts a diffuse and soft, atmospheric light. Made from solid-cast glass and an anodized aluminum backing, Dimple is cheekily named for the thick, domed circular diffuser embedded into its front face. This unique feature renders its LED source into a soft, atmospheric glow that emanates an orb-like, optical pattern.
Originally designed to complement the minimalist interiors of Manhattan’s Sister City hotel, Dimple’s simple silhouette consists of a solid glass lens against an anodized aluminum backing. The unique domed surface casts light in glowing, orb-like patterns.
The final form for the Dimple is almost as if you took a sphere and pushed it into the face of a plane, to create a concave curvature that’s visible through the thickness of the glass. It was a pleasant surprise to see how that plays with the light coming through it.
To commemorate the close of NYCxDesign 2022, RBW featured a private dining experience at the RBW Showroom at 50 Greene. Guests enjoyed a vibrant meal and dessert performance by Woldy Kusina for an intimate moment of shared celebration.
Thank you all for joining Theo Richardson, Charles Brill and Alexander Williams, founding partners of RBW, alongside Julia Gamolina of Madame Architect for a panel discussion and opening party to celebrate the opening of NYCxDesign 2022.
What began as a friendship between 3 students of the RISD Furniture Design program, has grown into the 13-year partnership that is RBW. We’re thrilled to announce the introduction of the RBW Endowed Scholarship at the Rhode Island School of Design.
