RBW Partners with Jonas Damon on Highline, its Most Versatile Light Yet
Mix and match with Highline
Meet Highline, RBW’s newest lighting system. Designed in collaboration with industrial designer Jonas Damon, Highline is an adaptable, easy-to-install system that marries the flexibility of a linear fixture with the thoughtful design of a decorative pendant. Highline’s three distinct fixtures – a cone pendant, spotlight, and shade – suspended by a beam enable users to mix and match to suit a variety of environmental and decor needs.
Versatility in Design
Highline’s slim, suspended beam pairs with three distinct fixture options. Choose the sleekness of the cone pendant, the versatile dual-axis swivel of a spotlight, or the warmth of the felt shade made from 90% post-consumer fibers. The beam can be paired with a linear uplight to cast a soft, diffuse glow.
As a track pendant designed to adapt to a wide range of projects, Highline’s fixtures can be easily swapped out and repositioned without the use of any tools. The beam itself, offered in 4- and 8-foot lengths, lends itself to endless customization. Overlap and cross beams, mount fixtures asymmetrically, or suspend in long linear rows for a unique expression. Highline elevates traditional track lighting through its thoughtfully considered details, including its graceful hanging armatures, black anodized finish, and chamfered edges of its understated aluminum beam.
About Jonas Damon
Jonas Damon, RBW collaborator and founder of the New York City-based Office for Design, has worked with the best of the best, including Google, Malin + Goetz, and Areaware. His sense of optimism and emphasis on human engagement distinguishes his approach to design, spanning physical, digital, and service platforms.
“I was intrigued by the idea of levity within a performance-driven typology, creating an atmosphere that is light and warm in both form and output, with a fixture that is quite technical in its composition. Highline is the result of RBW’s steadfast belief in this idea, devoting four years of exploration into physics and shapes to bring it to life.”
