’38 series’ by omer arbel

the ’38’ series is a new chandelier concept by omer arbel of canadian design firm bocci. the lighting object is composed of globes of blown glass whereby air is pushed in and out of the shapes which are intermittently heated and cooled. white cavities are then introduced into the spheres haphazardly, causing an intentional intersection and collision of forms. some of these have a depth which has the capacity to contain earth for small plants, while others are used to house lighting elements. each larger orb can host two or three lanterns, along with one or two planters.

omer arbel will present the ’38’ series chandelier during milan design week 2012 at spazio rosana orlandi.
