Rich Brilliant Willing
Rich Brilliant Willing is showing their new Cinema Chandelier along with a line of collaborations with the founder of the Rockwell Group, American architect and designer David Rockwell.
Rich Brilliant Willing explains the Cinema Chandelier as "A subtle display of cutting-edge technology, both in the fine-tuned warmth of the LEDs and in the construction and craftsmanship."
RBW collaborated with David Rockwell on the design of three lights, a pendant and two sconces.
Rockwell states that "each piece in the collection has a transformative quality," and that "through variations in size, configurations, and light, each piece in the collection can solve any number of aesthetic and functional needs for residential, hospitality, and contract settings."

He explains, "Designers from across Southeast Asia are creating truly original designs from local natural fibers, making use of the abundance of skilled craftsman. Such consummate artisanal skills, passed through generations from master to apprentice and drawn from hundreds of years of tradition, not only embraces our rich culture, but uses it to create our future."
