Designed in collaboration with the acclaimed Yabu Pushelberg studio, Glyph is an elegant union of contrasts that casts a dynamic play of light and shadow.
Our newest sconce embraces the gestural simplicity of glyphs—symbols that compact meaning into a minimal graphic form. The collaborative design comprises two vertical panels joined at 90 degrees that form two halves of a whole—an intersection of contrasting colors and textures, as well as distinct shadows that complement a soft diffusion of light.
Glyph combines RBW’s high-performance lighting technology with the rich design ethos of Yabu Pushelberg, the award-winning, Toronto-based firm celebrated for its subtle infusion of play into sumptuous interiors. The construction is a reflection of the two studio’s shared appreciation for simple but dynamic forms.
Glyph’s four finishes Emerald, Luster, Glimmer and Natural were thoughtfully selected for their richness and versatility. Each pairing features a level of textural contrast for added dimension.
Multi-disciplinary Design Studio
Yabu Pushelberg designs places and products: immersive environments, compelling destinations, and considered goods. George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg founded the studio in 1980 with an emphasis on interior design and have since evolved into creative directors addressing multiple layers of human experience. With offices in New York and Toronto and a team of more than a hundred creatives and professionals, the studio specializes in sensibilities spanning strategy, interior, product, lighting, textiles, and styling with a focus that goes well beyond what things look like, to how they make people feel.
We're proud to be recognized for shaping America's creative landscape alongside other visionaries, from design mogul Julia Gamolilna of Madame Architect to influential icon Thom Browne and standout star Lady Gaga. Cheers to all trailbazers and tastemakers forging new innovative paths!
