    Business of Furniture magazine – January 30, 2019 issue

    “Rainlight, the international product design studio based in London and Los Angeles, has garnered an impressive number of collaborations and awards in its first year of business. The company has collaborated with leading names in the world of furniture manufacturers, including Scavolini, Allsteel, Okamura, USAI, Carnegie Fabrics, Clestra, Mannington Com-mercial, Tecno. It also launched 12 new products at Salone del Mobile/Milan, Clerkenwell Design Week/London, Neocon/Chicago, AIA National Conference/New York, SDA Show-case/New York and Orgatec in Cologne.”

    Part laboratory, part workshop, part studio, Rainlight combines design innovation with business acumen. Accolades Rainlight has earned over the past year include:

    • Best of NeoCon 2018 Gold: Conference room furniture
    • Best of NeoCon Gold: Education Solutions (Satellite for Okamura)
    • Hip Awards NeoCon 2018: Product/workplace/furniture (Rock for Allsteel)
    • Interior Design BOY Awards for Education Furniture with Allsteel Townhall (Townhall for Allsteel)”

    Led by Susan Grossinger and Yorgo Lykouria, Rainlight enters 2019 in a strong position by making products that enhance the way people live and work. Further launches are planned throughout 2019 at many of the major global trade shows.

    “Product design is about the individual and their interaction with an object — it is the most personal of the design disciplines,” said Grossinger, who is based in Los Angeles. “Whether it’s your eyeglasses, the chair you sit in or your steering wheel, we all have a visceral interac-tion with design that affects our day-to-day life. The opportunity to make that experience extraordinary is in itself an exceptional experience.”

    Rainlight strives to create objects that are timeless and pioneering. “A trend is already yes-terday,” Lykouria said. “We begin our work open to all possibilities.”
    Its process starts with a philosophical question, refraining from the immediate urge to design.

    “The things we create embody thought,” said Creative Director Lykouria, who is based in London and has more than two decades of experience in industrial design and architecture. “Our work today is a message to the future,” he said.

    Allsteel’s Townhall Collection Designed by Rainlight Wins Interior Design’s 2018 Best of Year Award. Townhall is a collection of movable soft seating, tables and accessories that is inspired by human-centric design – movable, but not mobile. The collection supports multiple functions, new postures and diverse activities and provides a system of components that create agile micro-environments with individual objects that complement and add variety to the landscape. The collection includes: Peak – a lounge grouping of chairs, chaises, ottomans and tables characterized by their organic, pebble-like shapes which vary in height and geometry. The asymmetrical design offers unique compositions to support a range of tasks and settings; Summit – a lightweight stacking stool, with footrest and slight ‘bounce’ allowing for movement; Picnic – a collection of seated and bar height tables, seats, benches and stools, narrow in scale to fit the ‘in-between’ space; Rock – a chair that provides a fun, captivating option to the rocking chair or beanbag and celebrates the ‘fidget’. Its unique shape supports an upright posture for engaged participation, while providing a base that encourages action and motion; Wedge – a high-back chair designed for moments of both collaboration and respite; and Cloud – a discreet and thoughtfully designed screen that provides privacy where it’s needed and is aesthetically pleasing when positioned on its own.
