Istanbul twilight comprises nine candleholders, made of felt, dedicated to the metropolis that connects Europe and the Middle East. The shape of the candleholders are directly inspired by the silhouette of Istanbul. The use of colours reflect different shades of light on city facades at dusk and dawn.
Choice of material is based on a certain characteristic of wool: it doesn’t catch fire. The felt is cut into long strips and then coiled by hand into circles, like a snake. The candleholders are completed with a candlepin.
