Nedre Foss Cast Iron Tealight Candle Holder - Glo by Anderssen & Voll
- The Designer
- The Maker
At first we aimed at making a smaller sibling to Ildhane, however the gesture and form elements didn't translate well, as they were closely linked to the shape of the tall candle. The tea light needed a clear and strong representation of its own.
The handle is scaled and shaped to fit your hand whereas the corpus is scaled to fit a tea light.
This leaves the handle being the most prominent feature of the composition—almost like in a hand-tool of some kind. We appreciate how the undulating surface of the handle modulates the light and sort of transports it out of the corpus.

Physical & Emotional
There is a physical aspect as well as an emotional aspect to the longevity of an object.
Looking at the physical aspect, solidity is an important property to us—in terms of continuous shape in one material and also in terms of shear mass. Another key instrument is to choose materials that age well.
From an emotional point of view, it is impossible to ensure that an object will stay relevant over the next 100 years. Nevertheless our designers have gone about this task by choosing categories that have already been a part of our collective culture for centuries, as well as allowing themselves to draw inspiration from a vast time span stretching back well beyond modernism and the birth of industry.
