RBB Designs, LLC is a design firm working in the entertainment, event, and architectural markets.
We thrive on the opportunity to manipulate, control, and illuminate the way an audience's experience unfolds in front of them.
Lead designer Robert Bloom has over 15 years of professional experience working with established artists, producers, and directors, creating unique and memorable experiences that excite and elevate our shared conscience.
The core of our business is lighting design. At times, the goal is a perfect column of white light for a fashion show. At others, it's about saturated color, pattern, and shifting intensity, with pulsating lights that move to the rhythms of live music. In the events market, it is often a combination of these elements, highlighting a presentation while painting the set or venue with light.
While studying Lighting Design at the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, Robert taught himself basic photography skills to better document his lighting work. As time progressed, those skills grew and strengthened. He found synergy between the lighting and photography work as his understanding of exposure, composition, and focus became intertwined.
Both disciplines now reflect heavily on each other. Lighting for the stage has been enhanced by a greater understanding of the limitations of camera and the incredible power of the human eye. They both see light differently. Mastery of this understanding and manipulating these differences has become a core component of our work.
All of the photography in the design galleries is by Robert Bloom unless otherwise noted.
