Bocci, a contemporary design and manufacturing house based in Vancouver, Canada was founded by Omer Arbel in 2005. His conceptual approach has birthed a unique and striking collection of lighting, furniture, electrical accessories and objects. Their lighting design I am a particular fan of (see images below) and their installation at the V&A for the 2013 London Design Festival was awe inspiring (see video)

Bocci operates as a community of designers, architects, craftspeople, technicians, agents, governance bodies, testing facilities, raw materials suppliers and fine shops. Their aim is to build a network of talent unified in creating high quality, practical and aesthetically innovative consumer goods.

Bocci is committed to manufacturing at their Vancouver factory which reinforces their aim for community moving towards a common goal. The glass blowing studio, office, warehouse and design studio are all in the same location; Bocci employees walk through the factory floor to get to their desks. I just love this and vision for myself the same working environment.

Bocci offers consultation, design, and fabrication services for custom chandeliers of unlimited configuration – from petite to linear to oversized chandeliers. “Our custom capacity is infinite.”

I have pasted the following images below for your viewing pleasure. In my humble opinion, their work is not just lighting design, but art.
