Our friends at Bocci have done it again with the debut of their incredible new 16 series. Upon first glance, the modular fixtures read as futuristic branching forms, highlighted by illuminated 'petals' of glass. Each petal is formed by pouring three separate layers of molten glass - white, gray, and clear - one on top of the other, to form a single tactile disc. From there, each disc is partnered with another to create a one-of-a-kind petal.
Designed for complete modularity, the 16's system of branching armature carries low-voltage electricity and allows for an infinite variety of forms, ranging from the tree-like structures Bocci installed at the famed Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver to the chandeliers they debuted at this year's Euroluce in Milan. We're absolutely smitten!
The 16 series will become available through Switch Modern this May, 2015.
