He is a creator of spaces and objects and is based in Vancouver. Omer Arbel is an architect, a designer and the creative director of the lighting brand Bocci. He explores the intrinsic physical, mechanical and chemical aspects of materials as fundamental departure points for his work. By focusing on the process in stead of an end result, he likes to stumble upon discoveries. Those discoveries often become the foundations of his projects. He gets inspired by architecture, industrial design, materials research, sculpture, invention and high craft manufacturing.
Arbel's work has been exhibited at multiple galleries and museums such as Spazio Rossana Orlandi, Mallet, the Vicoria and Albert Museum and the Monte Clark Gallery.
