Bocci’s Living Archive in Berlin

8 January 2016 Permalink

Bocci Berlin


Unique lighting brand Bocci never fails to dazzle with their creative designs and displays. Bocci’s New Berlin headquarters is no exception, with 40 rooms, corridors and spaces which are now open to the public. This building serves as a display of the most successful lighting features from the company, as well as their experiments and creative projects.


Bocci Berlin


Omer Arbel the creative director of Bocci: ‘Our work is an analogue set of experiments that usually fail but sometimes succeed.’ 
The rooms at Berlin HQ are visual presentations of experimentations, prototypes and exploratory projects. Many creations by Arbel and his team are usually unseen or unheard of, this display shows the capabilities and artistic vision of the company. The walls are mostly painted white, with a tide of its original colour left to represent the new wave of Bocci, these bare rooms give life to the imaginative lighting pieces.

Two particularly creative pieces (as seen above) show labour intensive processes, producing something almost alien in its appearance. 
‘76’ pictured left is a glass orb filled with white glass strands, a vacuum then forms this truly original pendant, Abel calls this a discovery by mistake! 
The garland like pendant pictured on the right is named ‘71’, consisting of metal bolts wrapped in copper wire. It is dipped thousands of times in a nickel based chemical solution; a large amount of electricity is then passed through the garland to create these coral like metal features.

Once these designs and processes are refined, they may be seen in future collections available for purchase! But until then, browse their current ranges for a piece of art to illuminate your space…
