If English idioms are any indication, “higher” equates to “better.” Such is the claim of RBW’s Highline.

Designed in collaboration with Jonas Damon, whose approach to design is characterized by “optimism and a sense of human engagement,” Highline is a veritable “shade shifter,” a re-contextualization of track lighting that adds in an intuitive sense of functionality, user participation, and fun.

Featuring horizontal beams that incorporate three varieties of light, Highline beckons with the temptation to mix, match, and reconfigure. Users can easily swap out fixtures without tools.

Damon expands on the idea, referencing the intuitive nature and tactile appeal of the simple L-shaped attachments: “To me, designing something so that the intent is made visible is creating an act of play in our environment; it’s exposing a technical feature and celebrating what it does.”
