R&B is the stealth version of DWR. Most of their offerings are unique to their brand, but they've diversified with reissued design classics, making them a satisfying one-stop source for quality transitional, ethnic and modern furnishings and accessories. They recently rounded out their already solid lighting selection with some well-priced new options. You can see them all here (the new products are tagged in green), but our faves are listed below: Multi-Use • Archimoon K: Designed by Philippe Starck for Flos®, Archimoon K has both muscle and delicacy. It's adjustable arm makes it versatile: use as a task lamp or for bedside reading.
• Dioscuri: This is the upscale tabletop globe lamp, designed by Michele de Lucchi and made substantial with hand-blown glass, thermoplastic resin, and weighted steel.
• Spun Light: Sebastian Wrong's 2003 design for Flos® is so simple it's genius. Task • Gloss: Designed by SF's own Pablo Pardo, We've long admired the highly adjustable Gloss and are pleased to see it make R&B's catalogue. Use for either task or ambient light.
• Orbiter: Robert Sonneman's retro-sexy 1967 reading light makes a statement in the bedroom.
Ambient Only • Gatto: Giacomo Castiglioni's 1960 design looks like the inspiration for some hipster vinyl toys we've encountered at Giant Robot.
