Yet another awe inspiring selection from the Roll & Hill catalogue is the Excel Floor Lamp by the design group Rich Brilliant Willing. RBW is made up of Theo Richardson, Charles Brill and Alexander Williams who choose to work together in order to let each of their unique ideas meld together to make broadly appealing products.
In the Excel Floor Lamp they’ve captured something magical. Simple in form yet sophisticated, this deceptive lamp has classic, contemporary and modern appeal all at the same time. Part of its beauty is how I can picture it in a woodsy mountain cabin just as easily as I can in a modern, International Style residence filled with the furniture of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe.
Roll & Hill describes it as…
“A spare and economical form, the Excel Floor Lamp is part of a new family of fixtures made from simple and elegant structures supporting illuminated shades. Excel’s hidden secret is a metallic reflector located inside the shade, which emits a warm light.”
This beautiful lamp, as well as the coordinating Excel Desk Lamp and Excel Chandelier are available at http://www.rollandhill.com/ or through me at Design Within Reach – North Avenue Studio in Chicago (312) 482-8661.
