The 28 Series by Bocci
The 28 Series is an exhibition of complex glass blowing techniques that produce stunning, distorted spheres of light.
The Bocci 28 Series
The 28 Series is an exploration of fabrication process. Instead of designing the form itself, the designer's intent for the 28 was to create a system that produces form. Each iteration of the fabrication procedure produces a different shape. Thus, every 28 Series pendant made is different from any other in existence.
Individual 28 Series pendants result from a complex glass blowing technique whereby air pressure is intermittently introduced to and then removed from a glass matrix. The result is a distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of inner shapes, one of which is made of opaque milk glass and houses a low voltage xenon lamp.
These pendants are designed to cluster in hexagonal shapes, which nestle into one another to create patterns as dictated by the needs of the interior.
