Thank you again for having us NYC! Here’s one last look at the bar we built to debut Beam and showcase highlights from our other families. It’s always such a pleasure to hear from so many friends + clients @icff_official 🤙🏼
Details. It’s been such a pleasure to see so many friends and clients this week @icff_official. We love you NYC! Beam in Oak, and Echo shown here.🤜🏻💥🤛🏻
Serving espresso & drinks at the bar we built for @icff_official this year, inspired by Japanese yakitori bars. We’re introducing Beam and showcasing Ada, Grain, and our Echo Lamp with @maisonintegre. It’s been so great to see so many of you come through. Thank you for all your kind words & support!
INTRODUCING BEAM. Available in 46” and 84” and Oak or Opal, shown here. Beam is equally at home in a dining room or a conference suite. In Opal acrylic, the translucent side panels and rounded ends soften the light from the internal LEDs and primary optic. Each considered part combines to create a refined linear fixture that casts an even, flattering glow. Come and meet Beam in NYC at #ICFF2019 starting tomorrow at the Javitz Center, Booth 857, running through May 22nd.
INTRODUCING BEAM. Here in Oak. Beam's central spine consists of a heatsink and optic holding two opposing rows of LED boards angled at 35 degrees from vertical. These two rows evenly illuminate the acrylic optic while directing the most intense parts of the light not down, but out toward the shade to be bounced downward, creating a pool of light that is devoid of hard shadows but instead fades to black. An inherently linear material with a strong history in classic Southern California furniture designs, Oak plywood was a natural choice as one of our shade options for Beam. If you’re in NY we’ll be showing Beam at ICFF starting Sunday. Javitz Center Booth 857, May 19th-22nd. Come & tell us what you think!
INTRODUCING BEAM. Shown here in Opal, Beam is our take on the classic typology of shop lamps. With the advent of new technology, fluorescent tubes have been replaced by thin strips of high efficiency LEDs. Using those arrays as our jumping off point, we explored linear manufacturing processes to arrive at our material palette of Oak, extruded aluminum and rolled acrylic. We join and shape these materials into a fixture with angled sides and rounded ends that imply movement and directionality, not simply an elongated rectangle, but a bold graphic line floating in space. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
#RMSchindler’s Southall House (1938) is an all-plywood house laid out in three volumes rotated at 45 degrees to face the view. *See Stories for images from the restoration process* Shown here: dining room from either side, and 2 of the 3 bedrooms. One of the things we love most about the house are the clerestory windows between rooms and between the exterior and interior, like in the baby’s room where one of two clerestories runs left to right across the image, soaking the small room in bright light. Thank you @laurejoliet @departuresmag @danrubinstein
#RMSchindler Southall House (1938), images by @laurejoliet. Mildred Southall was a visual music teacher and synesthetic. The color tones throughout the house were gray-green and “grayed green blue,” tuned to E Minor. The original Marmoleum floors hit the same note, playing off the blues in the canyon rock fireplace. A teacher’s piano sat beside a player’s piano in the far corner, and cushions for the children were stored in the benches along the windows. 🎹🎶 Also thanks to @danrubinstein @departuresmag!
From 2012-2014 the Studio operated from the #RMSchindler Southall House in Echo Park, built in 1938 for Mildred Southall. We’ve done some work to the house since then, and the Studio has moved several times to settle in our forever home in Glassell Park. Thank you to @laurejoliet (& @departuresmag @danrubinstein!) for these images of Southall today. More stories and images from the house to come this week.
Our Ada Sconce. It was important to us to design an ADA accessible fixture that did not compromise on design integrity. The Ada Sconce - inspired by #charlotteperriand - is the result. Ada 17 shown here.

Our Echo of Love Lamp for the #wallpaperhandmade With Love show. See previous post for process shots. Two cast bronze shells: one, a light source and the other, a reflector. Each cast shell by itself does a poor job of illumination: alone the reflector would sit dark, while the light source alone would cast a harsh direct light. But together,the two pieces engage in a beautiful formation that emanates light. Echo of Love is metaphor for our human relationships and how love is best understood when projected and reflected upon others.✌🏼Thank you for asking us to participate @wallpapermag and for your beautiful craft @maisonintegre
Beautiful process shots from @maisonintegre showing the making of our Echo of Love Lamp for #wallpaperhandmade’s With Love show at Salone die Tessuti. More images of the final piece in Stories👆🏻& more to come!

LADWP by the Martin Bros. Corporate-International style (1965). From the 1965 dedication: “The struggle for ample water and power at low cost looms large in the history of the city. Its successful outcome in the past has made possible today's great city, the metropolis of the western United States. From the founding of the little pueblo here in 1781 and the digging of the first municipal “zanjas," or, ditches to divert water from the Los Angeles River, to the present time, citizens and their governmental leaders have worked together with the engineers and the other men and women dedicated to the service of water and power to the city, to build what is now the largest municipal utility in the nation. History-making was the construction of the Los Angeles Owens River Aqueduct from the High Sierra, the determination to tap the waters of the Colorado River, the decision by vote of the citizens to develop their own municipal system of electric power, and the long and successful fight to enlist the federal government in the building of Hoover Dam. These and other pioneering actions provided water and power to the living growing city and shaped the destiny of Los Angeles ... The near future holds the bright promise of more water from the High Sierra and even more distant points, nuclear generated electricity, the linking of Los Angeles by transmission facilities with the mighty hydroelectric sources of the Pacific Northwest, and other modern miracles.” 😳 Photos via @tomofoto ➰ @ladwp1 ➰ @mingomatic ➰ @ryansoniat #acmartin
