Designed by Omer Arbel and produced by Bocci, this bespoke light installation is the second site-specific commission for the Lightwell at the Barbican Foyer.
Comprised of hundreds of free-poured aluminium forms, the work is suspended from the ceiling by a matrix of thin cables. As the sculpture descends into the space and expands, it punctuates the foyer, engaging with notions of weightlessness and mass, craft and mass-production, entering into dialogue with the Barbican’s concrete surrounds. Bocci is a Vancouver and Berlin-based design and manufacturing company founded in 2005 under the creative directorship of Omer Arbel, known for sculptural lighting and large scale light installations.Shop online and in store for a unique aluminum piece inspired by 44.The installation 44 is part of the London Design Festival, 17–25 September 2016.Share your photos using #barbicanXbocci @barbicancentre
