Architect and Designer, Co-founder and creative director @ Bocci
Based between Vancouver and Berlin, Omer Arbel cultivates a fluid position between the fields of architecture, sculpture, invention and design. Focal themes of his work include ongoing investigations of intrinsic mechanical, physical and chemical qualities of materials, and the exploration of light as a dynamic medium.
Arbel is the co-founder and creative director of lighting and manufacturing brand Bocci; his practice also focuses on innovative architectural projects and collaborations with cultural institutions and in the public realm. During 2020 Arbel will debut two solo exhibitions – a presentation of four current architecture projects with Aedes Architekturforum in Berlin, and a new series of copper objects at Carwan Gallery in Athens.
