Trio, 2020

Designed as an elegant centrepiece, the Trio candle holder is characterised by a beautifully sculptural ribbon form. The ribbon flares open at the base to provide stability, and seamlessly joins together at the top as if sculptured from the base of each candle. This design transforms simple pressed steel parts into a minimalist yet organic sculpture. Whilst striking in its appearance, the Trio can be created using simple manufacturing methods.
