The 14 Series are a family of low voltage pendants designed to be clustered in groups. It is characterized by its beautiful glass, which is interspersed with bubbles. Its surface is slightly uneven and creates a wonderfully comfortable and warm light. If several of these lamps are mounted separately in different heights, it results in a unique sea of light-balls that invite you to dream.
The 14 Series Bocci is elegant, sophisticated and a truly impressive piece of lighting. Inspired by waterdrops, two glass hemispheres are brought together with an LED globe in the middle centering the piece. Individually they are subtle yet outspoken, clustered in a group they are truly magnificent. they can be clustered over a dining table, used in a staircase void for a feel of opulence and luxury or configured over cafes and bars as individual pendants.
