Glass insulators: All of RBW’s members are inspired by found objects, but they hadn’t figured out a way to channel that love into pieces for production until they began working last year with Artecnica. Their cast-glass Bright Side Lights, which debuted earlier this year, were inspired by the electrical insulators that adorn the side of Williams’s family cottage in Maine and that can often be found along old railway lines. “In the old days, power lines would come in off the street and these would insulate the connection from the wooden frame of the house,” explains Williams.
