After revisiting one of its best-selling pendants, RBW presents the new and improved Akoya. The original hand-blown, opal glass bulb now boasts increased technical capabilities, as well as more refined perforations to its sheer, spun-aluminum shade. With Akoya’s shades now fabricated in North America, we’ve also cut down our carbon footprint by manufacturing closer to home.
Akoya’s newly engineered, state-of-the-art lighting module offers advanced technical capabilities, with increased lumen output and the efficient LED power consumption of only 8.7 watts.
Our versatile pendant offers a variety of options in size, color temperature, and finish. Choose from a 16" or 22" shade, color temperature from warm to neutral white, a powder coat in a shade from a curated color library or your own custom color.
Fine perforations give Akoya’s spun-aluminum shade the look of sheer weightlessness.
Akoya’s hand-blown, opal glass bulb emits a rich, diffuse glow, ensconced by a sheer aluminum shade fabricated in North America.
For this edition of Shop Talk, the interview series where RBW’s friends and collaborators exchange ideas, discoveries, and sources of inspiration, founding partner Charles Brill and New York architect Neil Logan discuss the transformation of a former IBM office in Kingston, New York, into the newly opened, 100,000-square-foot RBW Factory.
In collaboration with Field + Supply, we hosted an Open House at the newly opened RBW Factory in Kingston, NY, celebrating the grand opening of our new headquarters for manufacturing and innovation. Founding Partner Charles Brill led tours of RBW Factory, where guests took an exclusive look at the space where our catalog of luminaires is designed, manufactured, and fulfilled. Thank you to all of those who celebrated this milestone with us!
We are making great strides in the transformation of our new headquarters for manufacturing and innovation! With completion of Phase I construction and Phase II well underway, we are happy to share the progress being made on our future office space as we fulfill orders from our industry 4.0 factory floor.
