Omer Arbel [1]‘s dazzling 38 Collection for Bocci [2] features a series of suspended green lamps that double as planters. The surreal recycled glass spheres are blown with a multitude of cavities. Some spaces are deep enough to house LED [3] lighting elements, some cavities host earth and succulents, and electricity and suspension are provided by a copper tubing system.

At Euroluce [4] during Milan Design Week [5] Bocci told us that its lighting collections focus on the more emotional and irrational side of contemporary design through technical innovation, rigorous execution and a poetic approach. Based in Vancouver with a satellite company in Berlin, Bocci is a contemporary design and manufacturing house that works with a community of designers, architects, craftspeople and technicians that share an intimate connection to the Vancouver factory.

Bocci’s 38 Collection is made from recycled glass, lit by energy-efficient LED lights, and shipped in recyclable packaging. Bocci’s sustainability principles also seek to encourage responsible consumerism by creating lighting collections that last a lifetime.
