Today we are looking for not only functional furniture and storage solutions but also lamps and lights that fit our spaces at their best. They should be versatile, mobile and made of practical materials, which are durable, easy to clean and still look original. Today I’m going to tell about such lamps, and this is a collection of three simple lighting fixtures by American designer and architect David Rockwell for New York company Rich Brilliant Willing.
The designer aimed to create minimalist sculpture-like lighting fixtures that could be used in a variety of settings. It includes two sconces and one chandelier – each of which are based on simple geometric forms. Each piece in the collection has a transformative quality and through variations in size, configurations, and light, each piece in the collection can solve any number of aesthetic and functional needs for residential, hospitality, and contract settings. Phase, a wall-mounted sconce made from glass, is based on a part of the lunar cycle when the moon is half-lit. While one half of the spherical sconce emits a bright light, the other half is coated in a chrome finish to create a diffused glow. It can be installed with the exposed half facing upwards to create a bright uplight, or facing downwards for a spotlight effect. A second wall-mounted fixture named Notch has a cube-shaped cut-out in its rectangular shade. This allows the light to be cast from the top, the bottom, and from its core. The exterior of the brass lamp features a matte black finish, but its inside has been left bare, allowing the LEDs to reflect off the interior surfaces. A modular chandelier named Witt is made up of a spherical light encased within a hollow brass cube. They can be hung in a number of formations, allowing users to create a cluster or an arrangement of staggered heights.
