Bocci is a contemporary design and manufacturing house based in Vancouver, Canada, with a satellite company based in Berlin, Germany. Unlike typical corporate structures, Bocci operates unconventionally as a co-operative community of designers, architects, craftspeople, technicians, agents, governance bodies, testing facilities, raw materials suppliers and fine shops. Their aim is to build a healthy, flexible and stable network united under the goal of creating practical but striking consumer goods of the highest quality.
73V is an expansion of the technique used to create Bocci’s popular 73 Series. The new pendant features a novel oblong shape and gradient colour range. 73V results from blowing molten glass into a folded, heat-resistant ceramic fabric. The resulting shape has a formal and textural expression intuitively associated with fabric, which becomes permanent as it cools. A light source is positioned at the top of each pendant, accentuating the volumetric perception of the piece as well as the gradation of colour.
Individual Pendant: 7-9"H x 6.5-8"D
