28 is an exploration of fabrication process, which is part of Arbel's quest for specificity in manufacturing. Instead of designing form itself, here the intent was to design a system that produces form. Arbel developed a system of making with built-in flexibility, resulting in a unique shape in every iteration of the fabrication procedure. Thus, every 28 made is formally different from any other 28 in existence.Individual 28 pieces result from a complex glass blowing technique whereby air pressure is intermittently introduced into and then removed from a glass matrix which is intermittently heated and then rapidly cooled. The result is a distorted spherical shape with a composed collection of inner shapes, one of which is made of opaque milk glass.The 28d fixture is designed to sit on a horizontal surface (a desk, table, shelf, or even the floor). It consists of a single illuminated 28 piece wired to a flexible grey crochet memory cable. The cable is intended to be coiled into a sculptural pattern to provide a cushioned surface on which the glass sits.
