The 73 Series by Bocci, a Canadian lighting design company, is a stunning lighting fixture with an unconventional creation process. Debuted at Maison&Objet 2015, the 73 Series by Bocci is made by jamming molten glass into heat-resistant fabric, which gives the glass pendants a pillow shape and leaves the finished product with an almost tangible soft atmosphere.

Appearing like clouds or translucent pillows, the 73 Series by Bocci is the latest design iteration by the Vancouver-based Canadian brand with a satellite company in Germany and follows a string of other innovative lighting designs also revealed at Maison&Objet 2015 in Paris.

The lamp pendants hang in clusters and have an LED light source installed within them. The whimsical lamps are delicate as they inhabit the qualities of both liquid and solids.
