Rich Brilliant Willing Launches Modernist-style Chandelier and Pendants on Hoists


Launching during this year's NYCxDesign festival, the collection includes the Pilot chandelier and the Hoist, which is available as a pendant or a sconce.


"The common theme in both Hoist and Pilot is that they offer the user opportunities to manipulate their use," said Meyer Davis co-founder Will Meyer.


"The big idea behind the two of them is empowerment – for designers to be able to use these fixtures the way they want to use them."


Rich Brilliant Willing referenced the organic forms found in the work of mid-century sculptors like Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore to create the Pilot chandelier.


It features a central stem from which arms branch in different directions, with fibre-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 aluminium.


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 aluminium 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.


Rich Brilliant Willing was founded in New York in 2007 by Theo Richardson, Charles Brill and Alexander Williams. Previous projects by the company include a lamp combining marble, aluminium and wood, and a chandelier that contorts into different shapes.
