with its theatrical name and polished personality, the ‘cinema chandelier’ by rich brilliant willing celebrates the bygone charm of old hollywood glamour. presented during new york design week 2016 at ICFF, the luminaire manifests its use of cutting-edge technology both in the fine-tuned warmth of the LEDs and its construction and craftsmanship. twelve satin opal globes circumvent gold-plated ring, affixed with luxe metal finishes. the chandelier is tethered to the ceiling by two thin wires that seemingly disappear into the surrounding environment, putting the spotlight on the sequence of luminous orbs that emit a subtle, warm glow.
‘cinema chandelier’ continues rich brilliant willing’s dedication to technology, simplicity and creativity, uniting — in their own words — ‘the industrial and the elegant to engineer warm, dimmable lighting solutions that are as beautiful as they are innovative.’

also at ICFF 2016, rich brilliant willing introduces a product collection in collaboration with american architect and designer david rockwell, founder of rockwell group. the three new pieces include two sconces and one chandelier — ‘phase’, ‘notch’ and ‘witt’ — realized through the reinterpretation of basic geometric forms. the suite of jewel-like, LED pendants and sconces use solid, luxury materials to transform a circle and a square into minimalist, sculptural expressions. ‘each piece in the collection has a transformative quality,’ david rockwell describes. ‘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.’
‘witt’ is a modular, geometric interpretation of a traditional chandelier comprised of glowing luminaries framed by the outlines of five hollow brass cubes. the piece can be hung in a linear procession — both horizontally and vertically — as a cluster, or at staggered heights. thin suspension cables are near invisible, leaving the focus on the composition.

the composition of the ‘phase’ light recalls a quarter of the lunar cycle. half of the wall-mounted, cast-glass spherical sconce emits a bright light, while the other is coated in a chrome finish for a more subtle glow. multiple configurations can be created — it can be installed with the exposed half facing upwards to create a brighter, more diffused ambiance, or with the exposed half facing downwards, to concentrate light in a dramatic effect below.

‘notch’ casts light from the top, bottom, and from its core through a cube-shaped hollow cut out of its open, rectangular, column-like shade. contrasting finishes on the interior and exterior improve the quality of light — as LEDs reflect off the interior surface, they cast the color and shine outwards, adding depth to the overall environment.
