Omar Arbel’s 28 Table Lamp is just one of the many incarnations of this inventive and illuminating blown glass fixture for Bocci.
At first glance, 28 appears to be a flawless spheroid, but closer inspection reveals slight imperfections —spontaneous distortions intended and achieved via subtle manipulations in temperature and direction of air flow during manufacture.
The shade thus manifests an otherworldly aesthetic, with “an interior landscape of satellite shapes, including an opaque milk glass diffuser.”
The sphere within the sphere gives 28 its distinctive look. An accompanying black fabric cord provides an additional stylish detail—it’s semi-rigid so may be fashioned into sculpted forms.
The elegant brass stand with matching switch further refines 28 into a beautiful and functional lamp.
28 is also available as a wall lamp, floor lamp, and pendant. See
