28 is a result of a glass blowing technique developed by Omer Arbel whereby air is intermittently blown in and then sucked out of an intermittently heated and then cooled glass matrix. The result is a distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of inner shapes, one of which houses a low voltage lamp. 28 pendants are designed to cluster in hexagonal shapes which nestle into each other to create patterns as dictated by the needs of the interior. Standard 28 pendants are made in clear, white and frosted glass (with several other standard colour schemes contemplated in future months). However, 28 is a design which lends itself to infinite compositions and gradations of colour.
