A lovable fixture that is highly versatile in illuminating any room. Having identified the out-of-reach electrical outlet as a routine problem, RBW and Meyer Davis studios adapted the standard electrical cord as an integral, stylish component of Hoist’s overall design. Swagged and offered with generous cable length, the cord allows greater opportunities for where a pendant light can be installed. The shade is available in a variety of colors and diameters, with a sconce and flush mount version as well. Waterproof, the highly durable exterior is also suitable for outdoor installation, creating the possibility for a cohesive interior and exterior.
Waterproof, minimalist, and available in a colorful variety of finishes, Hoist goes just about anywhere: indoors or outdoors, as a wall-mount or a pendant. With a range of sizes for its circular shade, make a statement large or small.
The common theme in both Hoist and Pilot is that they offer the user opportunities to manipulate their use... The big idea behind the two of them is empowerment—for designers to be able to use these fixtures the way they want to use them.

Here in our latest Shop Talk interview, we talk to MAFIA co-founder Marcos Mafia and Director of Sustainable Operations Mika Endo about the highlights of their artist and designer collaborations, the challenges of operating sustainably, and how much their brand has been shaped by their surroundings.
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.
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.
