Designed by Bocci’s creative director Omer Arbel, the Bocci 87 pendant gives out a pearlescent white light. Hot glass is pulled and stretched like taffy. To create the pearlescent lighting, long sections of glass are pulled out and folded back on itself as it cools down trapping air in the loop, creating a grainy, textured effect. The process is highly precise, requiring the glass to be at an exact temperature to create and trap bubbles. The sections are folded back on themselves at least ten times, each time capturing extra air and making the glass appear more pearlescent.
Various configurations available
