  • What is better than one candle? Two candles, of course. With that in mind Peter Karpf designed the elegant semi-circular Gemini candleholder in such a way that mathematically the candles have the smallest distance apart while keeping the candleholder stable.

    The fascination with candle light does not end there. Together the Gemini candleholders can be arranged in any array of option the imagination allows. Whether on its own or in a group of other Gemini’s, this candleholder stands out with its clean lines, purity and polished stainless steel finish.

    To complement the purity of Gemini, the slender handmade candles provide a perfect finish for the candle holder providing the candleholder with the final graceful touch.
    Peter KarpfWhile some early controversial Peter Karpf creations – such as the multi-spiked lounge chair and the string chair – were valuable experiments, other designs have endured.

    His candlesticks, his monolithic molded plywood chairs, and his light fixtures have become modern Danish classics. Peter Karpf (b. 1940) learned furniture design from Fritz Hansen and worked for Grete Jalk and Arne Jacobsen.

    In 2002 Karpf was awarded the prestigious Bruno Mathson Prize - the most prestigious design award in Scandinavia. The jury's comment was: "His strong sense of form in combination with a deep understanding of materials and manufacturing techniques make him one of the greatest contemporary Nordic designers."

    Today, Peter Karpf’s designs are represented at numerous museums worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.

    To Karpf, design is a process of discarding experiments. Based on his belief that we live in an age of noise and stress, he designs furniture that brings us down to earth and helps us relax. This becomes clear when looking at the simplicity and calmness of the Gemini candleholder.
