The 73t Table Lamp by Omer Arbel for Bocci results from blowing liquid glass into a folded and highly heat-resistant ceramic fabric vessel. The resulting shape has a formal and textural expression intuitively associated with fabric, which becomes permanent and rigid as it cools. A 1.5 watt LED lamp (included) is positioned to fill the resulting volume with diffuse light, accentuating the volumetric perception of the piece.
The table light hardware includes an integral dimming system housed within a sleek brass cylinder. The black fabric cord is semi-rigid and may be sculpted to add form. The brass stand has a small notch on the underside, allowing it to be hung on a wall if desired.
Due to the hand-crafted nature of 73 Series, the glass shade size, as well as color depth and tonality, will vary.
