LEDge’s beauty lies in the economy of its form. The lightweight metal sconce measures in at roughly a ⅜-inch thickness and consists solely of two pieces: the solid-cast body with integrated heat sink, and an opaque PMMA lens to diffuse the LEDs inside. LEDge’s clean-cut design, drawn up as an intersection between two geometric planes, fits nicely into a range of settings: bathroom vanity to commercial hallway, bedside reading lamp to hotel lobby. Its flexibility extends further in options of upward or downward installation and an array of surface finishes.
Expressing our love for both simplicity and modernist design, Ledge’s beauty lies in the economy of its form: the appearance of two intersecting geometric planes, cast in metal a mere three-eighths of an inch thick. Install as an uplight or downlight, with an array of colorful finish options.
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.
