Inspired by the Nordic culture of using candlelight and the cast iron arts and crafts of the 1950s, Francis Cayouette has created candlesticks that feature a recognisable design and pay tribute to industrial craftsmanship and to the Nordic traditions. The uneven, almost cold surface gives the Heima candlestick character, while the rounded shapes make the design modern.
Francis Cayouette says: "The concept of 'cosiness' varies from person to person. For me the Nordic tradition of using candlelight is synonymous with cosiness. Arts and crafts must have a recognisability and a history and cast iron is an exciting raw material with history. It was natural to extend the Heima series and create different candlesticks for different types of candles".
The minimalist candlesticks are sculptural and make an elegant and stylish accompaniment to both modern and classic decors.
