Bocci is a contemporary design company located in Vancouver, Canada with a satellite company in Berlin, Germany. The company has a glass-blowing studio at their headquarters along with off-site locations for glass casting, ceramics and metal sand casting.
The company touts their technical complexity within a narrow slice of the contemporary world: works which are emotional, irrational and romantic.
The brand showcased some of their work at Maison & Objet 2015, in particular a pendant lamp made by putting molten glass into a heat-resistant ceramic fabric. Dezeen states that the lamps hang in clusters and have a texture that evokes fabric more so than glass. The pieces are lit from inside by an LED light. The shapes take their randomness from their process. A designer states that the force of the glass blowing into the fabric causes the fabric to fold and bend in unexpected ways.
