Oh Canada! The design link on the skating rink.

by

We’ve admired the work of Omer Arbel for quite some time. Several of his lighting and electrical designs for the Canadian company Bocci have been featured in our showroom and are beginning to grace local homes and businesses with their beauty.

Omer Arbel's 21 Series installed at Yokozuna restaurant in downtown Tulsa

The 21 Series captures the magic of light, suspended within folded pieces of a simple ceramic. This diffused light is soft and organic. Another phenomenal design from Arbel is the 14 Series. Hand-blown glass globes illuminated by tiny halogen bulbs create very dramtic displays without becoming weighty.

Though each sphere weighs over three pounds their placement and effective diffusion of light evokes feelings of weightlessness.

Arbel’s most recent design was in conjunction with artist Corrine Hunt. The 2010 Olympic medals are ingeniously designed and beautifully crafted pieces of art that speak highly of the power and quality of design from Canada.

The front of the medals display graphics reminiscent of totem poles

Though the Olympic Medals are not available at SR Hughes, we are proud to represent Bocci and the creative work of Omer Arbel.
