New York-based Rich Brilliant Willing has produced a mid-century-style chandelier, and pendant and sconce lamps that can be pulled up and down. This series can be easily adapted to different spaces and its aim is to empower empowering the owner to change and use them as he or she wants.
The Pilot features a central stem from which arms branch in different directions, with fiber-glass shades curved like turtle shells fixed to the end. The light can be installed in different compositions to offer various effects, from a direct light above a dining table to a “starburst”. It comes as a kit of parts ready to be assembled on-site and is available in Rich Brilliant Willing’s library of finishes, which includes dark and light powder coatings, and aluminum.
The Hoist pendant’s long cable is intended to provide a stylish way to connected to electrical outlets that are far away. The cable loops through a wall fixture with a handle that can be turned to lift the light up and down. An aluminum shade, available in blue and white, covers half of the large bulb. It is also waterproof so that the light can be installed outside, and a sconce version is also available.
