Blown glass, braided metal coaxial cable
Made in Vancouver BC by Bocci

Multiple blown-glass spheres converge to create the abstracted cloud-like form of 57. A fabrication process whereby air voids of different sizes and configurations are composed within a larger mass of dark grey or white opaline glass. These air pockets are invisible when the piece is unlit, and come alive to reveal an interior universe when 57 is illuminated. By virtue of the method of making, each 57 is completely unique. Much like the rest of the Bocci Collections, the 57 is available in a wide range of different configurations including hanging pendants (up to 36 shades), floor, table, and wall mounted versions.

57.5 is a random configuration of five 57 pendants hung from a round canopy. The pendants are designed to hang in a random configuration at times clustering and clumping together and others trailing off. The result is an ambient chandelier or field of light. Each diffuser houses a low voltage lamp. 57.5 uses strain relief connections, which allow the pendant lengths to be adjusted on site. Round canopy in white, black, or brushed-nickel come standard with 10 feet of coaxial cable.

57 captures Bocci's commitment to an exploratory, maker-led process. The glassblower decides where to place each sphere, and when and how to manipulate the form using heat. The maker's mood and vision that day determines the pendant's final shape. No two 57 are exactly alike. The series takes on further character according to the suspension system and whether grey or opaline glass is selected. Certain arrangements of 57 feel like a bank of roly-poly clouds, others like a network of mushrooms, and some like swarms of otherworldly creatures.

Bocci recommends mounting transformers remotely in a close, accessible and hidden location for ease of long term maintenance. Installation to be done by certified electrician to ensure code compliance. Unless otherwise specified, one transformer is sent for every 5 grouping of pendants.
