Each of the blown glass spheres of the 84 Series Mini Pendant Lights by Omer Arbel for Bocci starts with a white glass moil captured inside a fine copper mesh basket then plunged into hot clear glass. Air is blown into the matrix to gently push the white glass through the mesh, creating a delicate pillowed form that is suspended inside the thick outer layer of clear glass. Sometimes the copper mesh basket folds and crinkles, adding specificity to each piece. Undulations in the exterior shape are a natural consequence of the fabrication process and accentuate the gentle white pillowing below. A low-voltage xenon or LED light source is introduced into the piece, casting a warm coppery hue.
The 84 Mini Series Adjustable Pendant Lights are differentiated by their diminutive canopies.
- The 84.1m has 3 canopy options, visible in the gallery images.
- Please note, all of the 84.1m options do not attach directly to a junction box and the power supplies must be remote mounted.
- Lamps (10-watt xenon or 1.5-watt LED) and power supplies included.
