Bocci is a contemporary design and manufacturing house based in Vancouver, Canada, with a satellite company based in Berlin, Germany.
Unlike typical corporate structures, Bocci operates unconventionally as a co-operative community of designers, architects, craftspeople, technicians, agents, governance bodies, testing facilities, raw materials suppliers and fine shops. Our aim is to build a healthy, flexible and stable network united under the goal of creating practical but striking consumer goods of the highest quality.
The trend in contemporary manufacturing is to outsource production. In contrast, Bocci is committed to manufacturing at our Vancouver factory. We have a fully equipped glass blowing studio in the same building as our offices, warehouse and design studio, and off site locations for glass casting, ceramics and metal sand casting. Our designers, technicians and salespeople walk through the factory floor to get to their desks, and thus have an intimate and profound connection to our work. All these activities take place around a central courtyard with a very large tree, carved into the 5th floor of a renovated art deco former printing press building located close to Vancouver’s downtown, on the edge of the Pacific Ocean.
