In its Berlin outlet Bocci is showing its latest creations in a spectacular presentation.
73 explores a technique whereby glass is blown into extremely heat-resistant ceramic fabric. The process begins by sewing a loose fabric vessel and blowing hot glass inside, granting the glass a formal and textural expression that becomes permanent as it cools.
Forced air pressure creates the final form, while the temporary fabric shell provides both a shape and a texture counterintuitive to glass,evoking a formal language we intuitively associate with fabric. A flat LED lamp is positioned to fill the resulting volume with diffuse light, accentuating the perceptual dimensions of the piece.
By virtue of the loosely-controlled manufacturing process, each 73 is completely unique in proportion, size and shape. 73s are intended to nestle together in groups, creating increasingly more complex compositions with each added form.
