87.7 Suspension Lamp

Designed by:  Omer Arbel
Manufactured by:  Bocci

Soda water is used to trap air in a super heated glass matrix, which is vertically stretched and folded back onto itself between pegs numerous times. As the glass cools, the folding motion along the grain of the loop turns the entrapped air into microfilaments that give the piece a pearlescent optical quality. A low-voltage xenon or LED light source is introduced at one end of the loop casting light through the microfilaments and registering a gentle gradient.

The 87.7 lamp is available with seven pendants and has a brushed nickel canopy. The LED version is diammable when using a compatible dimmer supplied by others.  The 87.7 lamp weighs approximately 21lbs and requires seven 10W (dimmable) Xenon or 1.8W LED bulbs, which are included.  Approved to UL Standards by CSA.  Manufactured by Bocci.

Designed in 2017.

Standard drop length up to 10' max. Custom lengths available for additional charge up to 100'.

Custom 87’s are available for an upcharge providing infinite versatility in compositions, sizes, shapes and cable lengths.

Please note that Switch Modern contacts all purchasers to confirm the specific details of their Bocci order, including desired lengths of drops.

Bocci

Bocci was founded after a chance meeting in 2005 of its principals, Omer Arbel and Randy Bishop, during New York Design Week where Arbel was presenting a prototype of a cast glass pendant lamp and Bishop was attending a convention. The pair returned to Vancouver and launched Bocci with Arbel’s single, now iconic and award-winning ‘14’ pendant. Over the ensuing decade, Bocci has grown into an expansive range of lighting designs organized into families that are characterized by overarching aesthetics achieved through Arbel’s masterful experimentation and manipulation of materials – molten metals, blown glass, porcelain, ceramic – all infused with cutting edge illumination technologies. Arbel’s designs instantly become the focal point of any interior, creating an ethereal nexus of the universes of illumination, sculpture, and installation. Switch Modern offers the entire Bocci range on our website as well as presents examples from several of Bocci lighting design families within our Atlanta showroom.

Omer Arbel

Omer Arbel (born 1976 in Jerusalem, Israel) graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1997 after earning a bachelor's degree in environmental science. He completed an apprenticeship under Catalan architect, Enric Miralles, and launched OAO, his own building design practice in 2005. His work includes lamps, sculptures, and even power outlets for Bocci; his designs focus on the exploration of the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of materials and their interaction with light. Discussing the design process, Arbel notes that "failure is a constant companion. Nine out of 10 projects end in failure – we don't reach our destination, the client's patience runs out… there's great disappointment, there's mourning, and then there's the paradigm shift."
