omer arbel series 21 pendant lamp

check out these sculptural, brown baggy looking porcelain and glass series 21 lights from vancouver-based designer omer arbel. they’re inspired by the random natural arrangement of barnacles on rocks, but to me they sort of look like mushrooms (it’s the color in these photos, i know). thin sheets of white porcelain are wrapped around assorted sizes of frosted blown pyrex glass cones. the handmade nature of this process guarantees a unique, one-off looking style for each lamp, and a break from the traditional methods of working with porcelain.

they hang from a metal cable and attach to a brushed silver canopy. singles run $359 each, but multiples can be ordered as well as custom pieces.

can you imagine how cool the 26 light piece is that they offer?

unica home is taking advance orders now.

    I can’t believe that’s porcelain. It looks like fabric. Very cool.

    beautiful. they remind me of paper blowing in the wind… or caught in a tree.

    hi maryam,

    they look as delicate as a wind chime to me. i think they would be so gorgeous hanging over a dining table or in a foyer.

    nice to see you! 🙂
