As BOCCI is a design brand celebrating the importance of the whole design process, works in progress are exhibited in BOCCI 79 in addition to the complete range of catalogue pieces. The former courthouse in Berlin which is used as a showcase platform by BOCCI offers 30 different spaces with various atmospheres.
Based in Vancouver and Berlin, BOCCI is defined as a co-operative community that strives for a dynamic, flexible network, united by the goal of creating extraordinary objects.
Arbel cultivates a fluid studio culture, traveling between architecture, sculpture, invention, and design. Themes in his work include a focus on the intrinsic physical, chemical and mechanical qualities of materials, the volumetric treatment of natural and artificial light, propagation of self- organizing patterns, studio glass and a romantic mystical approach to the specific contexts and contingencies of each particular project.
We experienced the new designs of BOCCI which were presented in Milan during this year’s Salone del Mobile as well as the recent sculptural interpretations of existing works. We would like to share our key take aways from this unique BOCCI experience.
