Bocci, the Canadian design and manufacturing company based in Vancouver and Berlin, was founded in 2005 by Randy Bishop and Omer Arbel.
It specializes in sculptural lighting and large light installations which allow an ambitious and uninhibited expression of its internal culture and collective ideals.
In 2013, 280 of the 28 series glass pendants were suspended in the entrance of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, cascading more than 30 metres down in a tangle of copper wires. On March 5th 2014, Bocci and Omer Arbel unveiled the new 16 as a large outdoor installation at the entrance to Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel. These ambitious public works appear to have been warmly received.
Euroluce 2015 coincided with Bocci’s 10th anniversary and announcement of a major Berlin expansion. Bocci recently signed a 10-year lease on a historic 6-storey courthouse in Berlin’s Charlottenburg district, with a central staircase destined to act as a lab for more ambitious installations.
On november 6th 2015 the building at Kantstrasse 79 restored by the Berlin-based architectural practice Grüntuch-Ernst reopened finally its gates as their new first european showroom / site. The magic space inhabits magnificent installations over 2200 – square metres with an evolving exhibition of its living archive and a satellite fabrication laboratory.
