An honors graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Rico Espinet
started as a sculptor. His interest in objects soon evolved to installations in which the placement of the sculpture became as important as the objects themselves. Lighting was an integral part of these installations, defining space and heightening the overall experience.

that couples perspicuous line and warm, often atmospheric light into collections that affirm their environment. Drawing from his background in sculpture, architecture, and a fascination with the beauty of mundane objects, Rico Espinet's lighting is rooted in a generous vocabulary of form.
Although Rico Espinet continues to extend his collection, his first designs are still classics. The Monk Lamp
, originally fashioned with a microphone base and plumbing pipe, was a homemade reading lamp Espinet had made for himself. When a photo shoot by Todd Eberle of Espinet's studio landed the lamp in both a House & Garden
article and a Hunter Douglas
ad campaign, Robert Abbey invited him to design a line to manufacture. The Scribe Lamp
, influenced by the Monk Lamp
was his first design for Robert Abbey Lighting, Inc.
