Witt

Witt is a modular, geometric take on the traditional chandelier. Two glowing, pearl-like luminaires are framed by the graphic outlines of five hollow brass cubes, which, like building blocks, allow for endless compositions: They can be hung in a linear procession, both horizontally and vertically; as a cluster; or at staggered heights. The sets of five can also be combined to a customized scale. The ultra-slim suspension cables are near invisible, leaving the focus on the composition.

On the Grid

Inspired by the late Sol Lewitt’s sculptural explorations of simple grids, Witt takes on a graphic, starkly geometric form, complemented by the soft contours of pearl-like glass bulbs. In collaboration with our friends at Rockwell Group, we’ve reinterpreted the artist’s visual language in five new compositions of our own.

Collaboration

David Rockwell

Architect & Founder, Rockwell Group

Together, the two firms reinterpreted basic geometric forms as minimalist sculpture, using solid, luxury materials to transform the circle and the square into expressions of poetic simplicity. The result of a long collaborative relationship creating customized luminaires for a diverse range of our projects. Rockwell Group and RBW have taken pure geometric forms like spheres and cubes and softened them with poetic simplicity. Through variations in configuration and light, the three minimalist suspension and wall-mounted fixtures solve for a number of needs.

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.
