The Bocci 21 Series, designed by Omer Arbel, was inspired by the sporadic, discordant arrangement of barnacles on a rock surface. The 21 is fabricated from a process in which thin porcelain sheets are draped over an inverted diffuser made of sandblasted borosilicate glass. The thin porcelain skin is allowed to dress the borosilicate core in whatever form occurs naturally – creating a unique shape in every iteration of the fabrication process. Each glass diffuser houses a low-voltage xenon or LED lamp. A strong contrast occurs between the soft, organically distributed light passing through the white porcelain skin and the crisp light moving through the glass diffuser. 21s are designed to cluster in groups, with individual pieces touching each other to create a layered composition in three dimensions.
Each pendant comes with a lamp and an integral power supply. For orders of more than 8 LED pendants, please specify in the order notes if you would like them to dim and one dimmable remote mounted driver will be sent.
