'28.7' by Omer Arbel for Bocci

In collaboration with the Vancouver based designer Omer Arbel, the Canadian manufacturer Bocci realised this new series of suspension lights.

“28 is a result of a glass blowing technique developed by Omer Arbel whereby air is intermittently blown in and then sucked out of an intermittently heated and then cooled glass matrix.”

“The result is a distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of inner shapes, one of which houses a low voltage (12V, 20W halogen/xenon) or LED (12V, 0.3W) lamp.”

Due to this process every ’28’ is slightly different and therefore unique.

’28’ comes in different sizes – from ‘28.1’, with only one sphere, up to ‘28.19’.
