RBW

Named to reference its sewn textile construction—the shade body is “all sewn,” offering a slight double entendre—AllSew, a homophone of “also,” connotes an additive quality, as well, suggesting its intended use in a tiled configuration of multiple units.

Rich Brilliant Willing is proud to present their latest statement piece, AllSew, a modular, scalable pendant inspired by the luminosity of lanterns, and the lightweight, collapsible efficiency of kites. AllSew is now on view for a limited time in San Francisco at 835 Larkin Street. Schedule your personal walk-through here.

The large, illuminated volumes of AllSew recall classic Akari paper lanterns, reinterpreted and updated for high-performance needs and everyday use. Intricate details and functional considerations belie its simple form: The interior framework is made from thin, gently pliable rods engineered for strength under tension, and ease of assembly. Compressed for shipping, the shade material retains wrinkles when expanded, adding a warmth of textural richness and lending a diffuse glow. Sailcloth fabric was selected for its extreme durability and luminous quality.

Shop Talk with Tom Hancocks Vol. 5

This year, we invited Hancocks to launch RBW’s visual artist residency, a new series of artist and designer collaborations aimed at creating unique visual experiences. As our first resident, Hancocks designed three immersive and stunningly detailed fictional environments—two workspaces and one resort—for RBW XR, our 360-degree, extended reality platform for viewing our products in situ. Here, Hancocks walks us through his subconscious approach to design, and describes the perks of cross-disciplinary collaboration.
