Omer Arbel at Arkitektura Assembly

Omer Arbel, founder and creative director of Bocci, presented his ideas and design vision at Arkitektura Assembly for an evening that focused on process as a profound design strategy. His Vancouver based firm specializes in translating workshop experiments in craft into innovative products infused with beauty. Arbel’s rise over the last five years has been a perfect lesson on how to operate at an international level and yet retain both creative  and product control.

San Francisco’s design community helped create a very social night of conversation.

Our interview with Omer as part of our Design In Mind podcast can be heard here and through iTunes.
