Bocci 14s Surface Mount Light

bocci 14s surface mount light

bocci 14s surface mount light

Design Omer Arbel, 2005
Cast glass, blown borosilicate glass, braided metal cable
Made in Vancouver BC by Bocci

This low-voltage wall- or ceiling-mounted light is a cast glass half sphere with a frosted cylindrical void that houses either a 10-watt xenon or 1.8-watt LED lamp. Individual lights are visually quite subtle, but gain an atmospheric quality when multiplied and clustered in groups. 14 can be hung on a wall or ceiling which allows for a variety of compositional possibilities, ranging from ambient to punctuated dense clusters in specific high profile locations.

The 's' or 'sp' designation in this variation on the 14 refers to it being surface-mounted. The 'sp' comes with a mounting plate large enough to cover a standard North American junction box. This surface light has a paintable 115mm (4.5") diameter mounting plate designed to be mounted on walls as well as ceilings. The 's' designation of this surface light has a discrete 55mm (2.2") in diameter mounting plate designed to be mounted on walls as well as ceilings, with transformers mounted remotely. Both lights can also be specified IP65, meaning they can be used outdoors and in other wet environments.

Bocci Creative Director Omer Arbel explores the intrinsic mechanical, physical, and chemical qualities of materials as fundamental departure points for making work. His interdisciplinary practice spans multiple scales and cultural-economic contexts. Omer Arbel's work has been exhibited in various museums around the world.

In 2005, Bocci was founded in a red barn surrounded by hay fields, on the periphery of Vancouver, Canada. The company launched with one product, 14, which became an instant classic and remains a design staple and bestseller. Today, Bocci has a growing portfolio of contemporary design ranging from light installations through to furniture and electrical sockets. All Bocci designs are developed, engineered, and fabricated in-house through an infrastructure calibrated to provide full control over technique, quality, and scale.

Installation to be done by certified electrician to ensure code compliance. Unless otherwise specified, one transformer is sent for every 5 grouping of pendants. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.
