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.
The 73V random is suspended using coaxial cable and composed in ambient groupings.
A flexible suspension system enables pendants to be nestled in close-knit groups or loosely composed in a wider field, allowing each piece to be perceived individually.
