Bocci 21.1 Single Pendant Light

bocci 21.1 single pendant light

Design Omer Arbel, 2007
Raw porcelain, blown borosilicate glass, braided metal cable, steel
Made in Vancouver BC by Bocci

Inspired by the sporadic, perhaps discordant arrangement of barnacles on a rock surface, the 21 collection is fabricated from thin sheets of porcelain draped over inverted trumpet-shaped diffusers made of sandblasted borosilicate glass. The thin porcelain skin is allowed to dress the borosilicate core in whatever form occurs naturally - creating a unique shape in every iteration of the fabrication process. A strong contrast is established between the organically distributed soft light passing through the translucent white porcelain skin and the sharp, crisp light passing through the borosilicate glass diffuser.

21.1 is a single 21 pendant hung from a canopy. Each diffuser houses a low voltage lamp. The pendant is designed to hang either alone or in clusters. 21.1 uses strain relief connections, which allow the pendant lengths to be adjusted on site. Round, brushed-nickel canopies come standard with 10' feet of coaxial cable. Additional cable lengths are available in increments of 10' feet, up to a maximum of 120' feet in special applications.

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.

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. Shallow canopy attaches directly to a standard junction box. Mini canopy (21.1m), mini outtie canopy (21.1mi) & minnie innie canopy (21.1mo) require transformers to be remote mounted and a drywaller to provide a finished look. Unless otherwise specified, one transformer is sent for every 3 grouping of pendants. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.
