1. In May 2011, Bocci suspended three impressive 28 series chandeliers (vimeo.com/23515183) from boom lifts on the streets of NYC for part of the NoHo Design District fair. This video shows the set up of the installation over Bowery St.

  2. 28 is an exploration of fabrication process which is part of Bocci's quest for specificity in manufacturing. Instead of designing form, here the intent was to design a system that produces form. 28's result form a method that has loose parameters built into it, which produces a different shape in every iteration of the fabrication procedure. Individual 28 pendants result from a complex glass blowing technique whereby air is intermittently introduced into and then removed from a glass matrix which is intermittently heated and then rapidly cooled. The result is a distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of inner shapes, one of which is made of opaque milk glass and houses a low voltage lamp.

  3. 19 is an exploration of sand casting which is a low fidelity technique used for making metallic objects. The technique involves pressing a shape into sand to create a void, and then roughly pouring molten metal into the void. Some overspill is a by-product of this process, which is, in conventional circumstances, cleaned up after production and refinished.

    In this project we explored the expressive possibilities of the overspill. We developed a technique that encourages a generous and unpredictable overspill during production, which occurs along the entire open perimeter of the cast piece, making a unique 'halo' fir every piece fabricated. We chose to use a high copper content brass such that the overspill oxidizes instantly, producing an extremely textured surface that stands in contrast to the interior of the piece, which retains a smooth finish because it does not come in contact with air, and which we hand-polish to a near mirror finish.

  4. In April of 2011, Bocci switched out the green 28 series chandelier (vimeo.com/23515183) installed at Gene Cafe in Vancouver, BC and replaced it with a colourful, spring inspired piece. The green chandelier was then sent to Milan at Spazio Rossana Orlandi (vimeo.com/22679741) for the Milan Furniture and Lighting Fair.
