Chip is a surface-mounted fixture with the familiar grooves that extend the surface area its light can reach. Scoring Chip’s clear, solid glass body and painted interior, the grooves also add a textural quality to its minimalist design. Installation options include with or without a square mounting plate. Chip is suitable for installation as a bathroom vanity light or outdoors, as well as in foyers and corridors.
Taking up where we left off with Crisp, our best-selling, circular sconce, Chip is the slimmer, rectilinear version—and bears a striking family resemblance. Chip carries the satisfying heft of solid glass, cast with an unusually ruffled surface. The ridges add both texture and function, extending the reach of the light it casts.

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.
