Vancouver-based lighting brand Bocci was founded by Randy Bishop and Omer Arbel in 2005. Arbel who is the brand’s creative director, considers rigorous exploration of materials and a generous amount of ‘play’ as essential. This approach referred to as “constrained chance” by Arbel, delivers exquisite craftsmanship and intriguing surfaces.
While glass is the company’s primary material, copper, steel, concrete, wood, and porcelain all play their part, as do the vagaries introduced when these elements are combined with heat, fire, and air. With all lights produced in-house by a group of dedicated craftspeople, these unpredictable elements are transformed into objects of great beauty with each light varying slightly from the next, delivering a level of subtle complexity rarely seen in modern lighting.
