editor's obsession: etch candle.
September 19, 2011
I’ve never been a big candle person. It’s not that I don’t like the often pleasing scent and the gentle glow of a subtly flickering flame, it’s just that I’m constantly forgetting to blow it out when I leave the room—and then constantly obsessing about whether or not I remembered not to forgot to blow it out after I’ve left the house. With this Etch Candle Holder from Tom Dixon, though, I wouldn’t have to worry about that; mostly because I wouldn’t be able to take my eyes off of it. The octagonal bronze panels are delicately etched in a dizzying circle pattern that casts a playful shadow when lit, and the fun geodesic shape makes it interesting to look at from every angle.
