73 series lights by Bocci
73 results from blowing liquid glass into a folded and highly heat-resistant ceramic fabric vessel. The resulting shape has a formal and textural expression intuitively associated with fabric, which becomes permanent and rigid as it cools. A xenon or LED is positioned to fill the resulting volume with diffuse light, accentuating the volumetric perception of the piece.
notes on installation:
If hanging above a dining table, we recommend having 70<75cm of space above the table and below the lights.
Based on a ceiling height of H235cm, this would give a hanging window (measured from the underside of the canopy to the bottom of the pendant) of minimum cable length 35cm < maximum length of 80cm. If choosing a canopy plate, this has a depth of 53mm; it can be surface mounted, or flush mounted inside a ceiling. On installation, your electrician should secure the canopy plate first.
73.8 and 73.11 use headphone jack connections, which allow the pendants to be “plugged into” the canopy for fast and easy installation. Here, pendant lengths are pre-set during production and are not site adjustable. In the case of a 73.8 and 73.11 the cables cannot be readjusted – this is only possible with 73.1 – 73.3. However, the customer will be able to order new cables and they would be cut to length by technicians at Bocci.
When ordering either of the 73.8 or 73.11 series arrangements on a canopy, we will ask for your preferred hanging heights.
Bocci’s technicians will set the shortest and longest cable lengths within a height window, and the remaining lights will be staggered in between. The pendants will arrive with their cables pre-cut to various lengths within your min < max requested heights. The cables should be plugged into the secured canopy plate and connected to the pendants to create your desired arrangement.
A 24w driver is also included; this fits behind canopy plate and is trailing edge dimmable.
Each 73 series pendant weighs approx 2.7kg.
notes on bulbs for 73 series:
Each pendant is supplied with 1.5-watt LED bulb.
The standard glass pendant colour is clear/transparent, but coloured pendants (grey 1, grey 2 or grey 3) are available for a surcharge of GBP £150 per pendant. Please get in touch for details.
