Sculptural and malleable the contortionist Palindrome was built to adapt to its environment. Each installation is unique, thanks to the modular composition of its tubular steel arms. They rotate to the custom configuration dictated by the size and shape of a space, and the light itself adjusts to mirror corresponding moods. At its brightest setting, the chandelier emits the white tones ideal for commercial projects, but once dimmed, Palindrome’s light shifts to the warmer, amber tones best suited for intimate hospitality and residential spaces.
How a designer composes Palindrome was as much a consideration as the individual elements that contribute to the overall language of this collection.
Founder & designer
While Palindrome required some diligent engineering on our end, the finished product is a surprisingly easy-to-install, modular toolkit for endless possibilities, no matter the size or the architectural conditions of the space. Once installed, Palindrome’s graphic, wiry silhouette reads like a signature—its composition is unique to every customer.
To commemorate the close of NYCxDesign 2022, RBW featured a private dining experience at the RBW Showroom at 50 Greene. Guests enjoyed a vibrant meal and dessert performance by Woldy Kusina for an intimate moment of shared celebration.

What began as a friendship between 3 students of the RISD Furniture Design program, has grown into the 13-year partnership that is RBW. We’re thrilled to announce the introduction of the RBW Endowed Scholarship at the Rhode Island School of Design.
