Palindrome

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.

One of a Kind

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.

RBW from Anywhere

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.

Shop Talk with Tom Hancocks Vol. 5

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.
