Neat poster for Força Ensino Orientado by Quadradão.
28, from Bocci, is a result of a glass blowing technique developed by Omer Arbel, whereby air is blown in and then sucked out of an intermittently heated and then cooled glass matrix. The result is a distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of inner shapes, one of which houses a low voltage halogen/xenon or LED lamp.
Because of the nature of the fabrication process, the shape and composition of each 28 is unique from all other 28’s ever produced. 28 pendants are designed to cluster in hexagonal shapes which nestle into each other to create patterns as dictated by the needs of the interior.
Standard pendants are made in clear and milky white glass, however 28 is a design that lends itself to infinite compositions of gradation and colour.
