Candlesticks by Space Copenhagen
Candlesticks is a collection of three modern candle holders by Danish design studio Space Copenhagen for GUBI. The studio’s founders, Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, have collaborated with GUBI to create a simple, refined silhouette that only reveals its sophisticated approach to materiality and presence on closer inspection.
With its understated silhouette, the Candlestick by Space Copenhagen unifies thedurable, industrial steel – used invarying heights for the body – with the dark antique brass, which creates thestable base for each one, binding the pieces together as a family.
Three heights: 12 cm, 17 cm and 20 cm – all with a diameter of 3.9 cm.
The base is the same size on all variants: 6 cm high – with a diameter of 4.5 cm.
A sculptural object even when not in use, the Candlestick can be used as a striking singular object or, given its three different heights, arranged in groups. More playful, informal arrangements, such as a cluster of the three different heights on a coffee table or just one or two on a nightstand, suit more casual environments. Start by collecting a few and add to them over time, embracing the flexibility of the design.
Each piece is presented in a high-quality cardboard gift-box with a ribbon loop in the lid, to ensure that receiving one feels just as special as lighting one.
Space Copenhagen wanted to capture the organic quality of fire in their material choices and so burnished the steel and added brass for a lighter, more refined accent. With echoes of their Gravity Collection for GUBI, the heaviness of the candlestick is an unexpected contrast to the light design expression, giving it a dynamic presence in any space.
