The Series 28 Desklamp slumps on the coffee table. A quest is an exploration of fabrication process, Series 28 is part of designer Omer Arbel’s quest for specificity in manufacturing.

Made from blown glass, electrical hardware and crochet memory cable, this unique shaped lamp is the result of a complex glass blowing technique. During the glass blowing process 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 inner shapes, one of which is made of opaque milk glass and houses a low voltage (12V, 20W) xenon.

The 28d fixture is designed to sit on a horizontal surface (a desk, table, shelf, or even the floor). It consists of a single illuminated 28 piece wired to a flexible grey crochet memory cable. The cable is intended to be coiled into a sculptural pattern to provide a cushioned surface on which the glass sits.

Suitable for residential and commercial use. CSA, CE approved; approved to UL standard by CSA, popular applications include single pieces sitting alone or clusters over tables in residential or office environments.
