100 Launch

September 17, 2021

We are very pleased to introduce our latest piece, 100 - designed by Omer Arbel and handmade in our glass blowing studio in Vancouver, Canada. 100 brings multiple glass artists together in a performative act. Molten glass bubbles are prepared by each, then smashed together to produce unpredictable interlocking glass forms.

“We developed a method to make fascinating shapes but realized the most interesting complexity remains hidden inside the volume”, explains Omer Arbel, Bocci’s co-founder and creative director. “We’ve been developing new methods for making forms for many years and routinely cutting prototypes to learn about what’s happening inside… but it occurred to us that the act of cutting itself can be part of the work, not just a learning exercise. For 100, we use a diamond saw to cut swaths off the bubble amalgamations after they cool, exposing the most fascinating parts of the geometry.”

100 will be shipping from mid October, for more information please visit the 100 product page here
