China: Like most young design studios, Rich, Brilliant, Willing lacks the funds necessary to travel the world visiting factories or checking in on production anywhere that’s much further than Brooklyn. Luckily, last month the trio (pictured above, in Shanghai) was invited to China to exhibit their Branch lighting collection at the Get It Louder festival, a showcase of emerging talent held every two years. The lights were displayed in their standard configurations in Beijing, and when the exhibition traveled to Shanghai, the designers reshuffled the lamps’ components using locally sourced materials as a way to make obvious their process and their affinity for found objects.
