The Bocci 28 series is the result of a glass blowing technique. During the production process, the pendant lengths are pre-set. This ensures that the pieces have a unique shape. Designed by Omer Arbel, this jewelry is a perfect blend of classic and contemporary styles.
Bocci 28 series is a result of a glass blowing technique
The 28 series is a collection of contemporary pendants, which are created by a process of glass blowing. The technique involves intermittently blowing air into a glass matrix and rapidly cooling it. The result is a distorted spherical form, with individual indented inner spheres. These pendants are available as a single pendant, table lamp, or chandelier.
The 28 series’ sculptural form is the result of a glass blowing technique that allows the designer to experiment with the fabrication process of the design. The technique uses loose parameters that produce different shapes and colors with each iteration of the hand-made procedure. This means that each light is unique in shape, tonality, and color depth.
Pendant lengths are pre-set during production
The length of each Bocci pendant is pre-set during the production process. The two standard pendant lengths are 12″ and 300mm apart, and are not adjustable on site. The company is committed to quality and craftmanship and their production process is a testament to that.
The 28 pendants are crafted from a complex glass blowing process in which air pressure is introduced intermittently into the glass matrix while it is rapidly cooled. The result is a distorted spherical form with several imploded inner shapes. One of these shapes acts as a shade for the low-voltage light source.
