Design by Omer Arbel.
Unlike most contemporary lighting, the 14 Series pendants are visually quite subtle - 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 14.26 Round Pendant Chandelier is comprised of 26 cast glass pendants connected with braided steel coaxial cables to a round white powder coated canopy. Each individual pendant is an articulated, seamed, cast glass sphere with a frosted cylindrical void which houses a 10 watt xenon or 1.5 watt LED lamp. Cast glass is available in standard clear or rich smoked grey color.
The 14.26 Round is equipped with "Headphone jack" hardware, allowing the canopy to be mounted on its own, and then the 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 1990ís 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.
Bocci is a contemporary design and manufacturing house located in Vancouver, Canada. Unlike typical corporate structures, Bocci operates unconventionally as a co-operative community of designers, architects, craftspeople, technicians, agents, governance bodies, testing facilities, raw materials suppliers and fine shops. Their aim is to build a healthy, flexible and stable network united under the goal of creating practical but striking consumer goods of the highest quality.
