28.19 - 2 Pages
28 is an exploration of fabrication process which is part of Arbel’s quest for
specificity in manufacturing. Instead of designing form itself, here the intent was
to design a system that produces form. Arbel developed a method that has
loose parameters built into it which produce a different shape in every iteration
of the fabrication procedure. Thus, every 28 made is formally different from any
other 28 in existence.
Individual 28 pendants result from a complex glass blowing technique whereby
air pressure is intermittently introduced into and then removed from a glass
matrix which is intermittently heated and then rapidly cooled. The result is a
distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of inner shapes, one of
which is made of opaque milk glass and houses a low voltage (12V, 20W) xenon.
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. They may also
be clustered or composed in an ambient manner similar to their distant cousins
Standard 28’s are made with clear glass exterior spheres and milk white
interior glass cavities. Custom 28’s are possible with infinite versatility in colour
compositions, sizes and shapes.
Suitable for residential and commercial use. CSA, CE approved; approved to
UL standard by CSA. Popular applications to date include clusters over tables
in residential dining rooms and restaurants, accessory lighting in living rooms,
decorative lighting, linear configurations or clusters over bars and kitchen
islands, and large chandeliers in building lobbies and other public spaces.

Blown glass, braided metal coaxial cable, electrical components and a white
powder coated canopy.
Note: Preset pedant lengths may have a variance of ±50mm (2”)
Note: As an alternative to a built-in transformer, Bocci recommends
mounting transformers remotely in an easily accessible and hidden location
for ease of long-term maintenance.
