No one makes things quite like Omer Arbel. Consider this recipe for creating delicate glassworks (given the number 108 within his personal design log).
“Javelins are fired into the sky during a thunderstorm, with a conductive cable leading the electrical charge from a captured lightning bolt to a large insulated canister. The canister contains a mix of mineral and metal powders designed to produce phenomenologically interesting results when fused. The heat generated by the electrical charge fuses the powders into solid objects conforming to Lichtenburg dendritic patterns [the shape of a branching electrical discharge] (in nature known as fulgurites). Thus, each 108 is a signature or shadow of a specific bolt of lightning.”
In an age of showy self-expression and mass production, Arbel stands apart, as a hard-to-define design polymath. A few things are assured, of course. The Israeli-born, Vancouver-based designer, artist and architect created the Olympic and Paralympic Medals for the 2010 winter games. He is also the co-founder of the acclaimed lighting company, Bocci. He also numbers his works, rather than names them, allotting a number that corresponds with the order in which it is created. Our new Omer Arbel monograph is dedicated to this celebrated multi-disciplinary designer and master of sculptural lighting.
