A short story about the 14 series and Bocci's humble beginnings. The design for the 14 series sparked Bocci's working methodology and formed the intense and intimate relationship between design and manufacturing that has become Bocci's ethos.
The 14 series pendant is an articulated, seamed cast glass sphere with a frosted cylindrical void that houses a replaceable low voltage lamp. Individual pendants are visually quite subtle, but gain tremendous strength when multiplied and clustered in large groups. Light interacts with the bubbles and imperfections of the cast glass to produce a glow reminiscent of small candles floating within spheres of water. Cast glass is an organic process, imperfect by nature, and each 14 series pendant is handmade; thus, every piece produced is unique.
