It was the Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw who famously said: ‘We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing’. With this in mind, the Brick series of candle holders was created to introduce a playful approach to lighting. The designs that resulted are colourful, versatile, nice to look at and fun to use.
The series consists of three steel candle holders made in different sizes and varying heights. Colour choices include off-white, mint or powder. The smallest candle holder is sized for a single candle, while the medium size is made for two. The largest candle holder can contain four candles. As if it were Lego for the lighting industry, Block’s units can be placed side-by-side in a range of shapes and designs.
Available Autumn 2015 in the colours off-white, mint or powder.
Design: Domaas & Høgh
Norwegian design duo Ane Domaas and Kathrine Høgh met while studying design in Oslo, and have been working together since 2011. Together, they produce sleek forms for everyday use, which are often characterised by playful juxtapositions and a sense of humour.
With a mission to capture the spirit of contemporary Norwegian design and express it through their products, Domaas and Høgh uphold the classic Nordic trinity of simplicity, beauty and functionality. The duo’s first foray into lighting design was Blu, a multifunctional product that can be used as both a candle holder and a vase. Their Brick candle holder series is their first design for Northern Lighting.
