Experience the Patterns of Light exhibition for the launch of AllSew, a new luminous pendant collection, during design week at our Soho showroom. View the installation of oversized textile pendants sewn from a durable and luminous specialty sailcloth, that pushes the boundaries of scale while providing a delicate heft and visual weight to a space.

AllSew is a new modular pendant tailored for workspaces, and equally suited for a wide range of residential, hospitality, and contract settings. Designed for tiled, large-scale installations, AllSew creates voluminous, architectural ceiling scapes for an impactful statement. The collection's weightless volume and pared-down design recall classic Akari paper lanterns, and take inspiration from the material language of kites: lightweight, collapsible structures that combine technical fabrics and composite rods. The shade is sewn from a durable and luminous, specialty sailcloth, while its interior framework is made from thin, gently pliable rods engineered for strength under tension and ease of assembly.

RBW from Anywhere

When we think about the future of work for our team, the fixed-five-days-a-week in the Factory or Showroom seems like a requirement from the distant pass. As we consider the evolution of how we work, it's clear that Work from Anywhere is here to stay.

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.
