Design by Omer Arbel.
The 14.14 is a chandelier comprised of 14 cast glass pendants configured with a rectangular or round canopy. Each individual pendant is an articulated, seamed, cast glass sphere with a frosted cylindrical void which houses a 10 watt xenon or halogen lamp. Unlike most contemporary lighting, the 14 Series pendants are visually quite subtle in and of themselves - like many tiny candles encased in floating spheres of water. The light interacts with the imperfections and bubbles of the cast glass to make a visually rich halo of light. Cast glass is an organic process - imperfect by nature - so each piece produced is unique.
The cast glass is available in the standard clear and can also be ordered in a rich smoked grey. Rectangular or round white powder coated canopy with braided metal coaxial cables. The 14.14 is equipped with "Headphone jack" hardware, allowing the canopy to be mounted on its own, and then the preset length pendants can be individually "plugged in".
Pendants CANNOT be shortened in the field. When ordering please specify the longest height (10 feet max) and the shortest height. Heights are measured from the ceiling to the bottom of the sphere. The remaining pendants will be at random heights between the maximum and the minimum.

Omer Arbel trained in the late 1990s as an architect. He apprenticed under Enric, Miralles, John and Patricia Parkau and Peter Busby, among others; and was centrally involved in several successful high profile building projects and international design competitions.
In 2003, Arbel founded a multi-disciplinary design studio focused on blurring the boundaries between the fields of architecture, industrial design, and materials research. It has been said of Arbel's practice that it's industrial design works, in both limited edition and mass produced formats, appear to be motivated by larger scale concepts which can only be considered architectural. Conversely, critics have noted that the practices' architectural works appear to be inspired by an obsession with the object, the possibilities implicit in the process of making, and the intrinsic quality of materials.
In 2005, Arbel became Bocci's creative director. His conceptual approach, now fueled by an infrastructure for prototyping, fine craft, manufacturing and distribution, has given birth to a collection of conceptually driven lighting, furniture, electrical accessories and objects, which have since gained significant presence and impact within the design community.See other lights/products from Omer Arbel

I LOVE this light! I installed it over my kitchen island and it looks stunning. I ordered 14 pendants, and they are very heavy. My contractor had to do a custom installation because it was too heavy. The light looks stunning on and off, and I love it. My only concern is that I hope any of the fixture does not fall on my counter - my counter is expensive and will break! A friend of mine bought one of these, one pendant fell on her hardwood maple floor and caused a huge dent.
