Since founding Bocci in 2005, Omer Arbel has created a stunning portfolio of contemporary lighting that delivers far more than just simply illumination. Bocci's organic forms bring an inherently inquisitive mood to each space it inhabits; an emotive value that no mass produced light could ever match. Individually the pendants are subtle yet divine, but when multiplied and clustered their impact is truly mesmerizing.
5 ways Bocci has us hooked:
- They are Canadian, born and raised.
- Sustainability is a integral part of their design practice.
- They keep manufacturing in-house as much as possible.
- The inspiration for each design comes from the deep exploration of the raw materials, with no end purpose in mind when they begin.
- There are a multitude of applications depending on personal or commercial aesthetic, offering a unmatched versatility compared with other light installations.
Installing a Bocci light in any space will take it from humdrum to memorable without even a click of a switch. Shown here is the series 84 from Bocci

The Bocci 28 Series
is unique in that designer, Omer Arbel, chose to develop a method of production that inherently makes each piece different from the next. Many colour options available.
Bocci series 21
results from a fabrication process in which thin porcelain sheets are draped over an inverted diffuser made of sandblasted borosilicate glass The Bocci 21 Pendant Lighting Series is available in lengths of 10' to 100'.
The 73 series
is a cloud-like pendant, each formed and folded in unexpected ways. The pendant is hand blown into a folded and highly heat-resistant ceramic fabric vessel and is housed with a 2.3-watt ring LED lamp which fills the volume of the pendant with diffuse light.
