Holocene No.2

Candlesticks / Candleholder from Wästberg, Designed by David Chipperfield Architects

Product description

Holocene No. 2: Oil lamp in brass, designed by David Chipperfield.


While the sleek brass of Holocene No. 2 serves as a nod to the classic oil lamp, its construction offers a more innovative, interactive take. Along the perimeter of its round base – where the lamp oil is stored – are two freely movable curved reflectors. Their matte brushed exteriors are contrasted by the inside surfaces, which are polished to a mirror finish. Once the off-centre wick is lit, fascinating reflections and counter-reflections are created. Both protected and enhanced by the brass reflectors, the flame’s light is allowed to play over its surroundings – an intriguing, infinitely variable dance between shadow and light.
