The 28 semi-rigid is a flexible suspension system enables pendants to be nestled in close-knit groups or loosely composed in a wider field, allowing each piece to be perceived individually.
28 is an exploration of specificity in manufacturing. Instead of designing form
itself, here the intent was to design a system of making that yields form.
Individual 28 pendants result from a complex glass blowing technique whereby
air pressure is intermittently introduced into and then removed from a glass
matrix which is intermittently heated and then rapidly cooled. The result is
a distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of imploded inner
shapes, one of which acts as a shade for the light source.
Standard 28s are made with clear glass exterior spheres and milk white
interior lamp holder cavities. 28s are possible with infinite versatility in colour compositions, sizes and shapes.
