During this year’s London Design Festival eleventh edition, the Canadian design brand Bocci is presenting a lighting installation at the festival’s hub venue, the Victoria & Albert Museum. Entitled 28.280 and designed by Omer Arbel, the installation is a massive vertically punctuated light sculpture located in the main atrium of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

The installation, featuring Bocci’s celebrated 28, descends through the large existing void cutting through the entire length of the V&A building, with an astonishing height of more than 30 meters. The intent of the installation is twofold; On the one hand, it is a pure celebration of the monumental open height of the building, which uses light to crystallize a powerful phenomenological experience for the viewer. On the other hand, it is the most ambitious exploration to date of a novel glass blowing technique.
