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.
RBW has turned 12 years old this year and we celebrated during NYCxDesign Week at the newly configured SoHo Showroom, along with the opening of our retrospective show — Taking Inventory.
Embracing the ethos of Industry 4.0, RBW reimagines lighting for the 21st-century, pairing beautiful, expressive design with advanced technology and engineering. In our forward-thinking, experimentally-driven approach, the end result is lighting out of the ordinary: statement pieces that take on unprecedented shapes, or staple pieces that make subtle upgrades on familiar forms.
As we look to our future in Kingston, we're eager to take part in the local community efforts. In seeking a partner that aligns with our purpose to positively transform environments, communities, and lives, we identified Kingston Land Trust.
