These tea light holders are from Toikka‘s Kastehelmi range, designed for Nuutajarvi Notsjo in the early 1960s. A beautiful amber captures the light beautifully.
Oiva Toikka is a Finnish glass designer. His work is not always the most modernist in following a ‘less is more’ doctrine; but his maverick nature is certainly a modernist trait!
Like so much Finnish design, the candle holders capture the patterns of nature: the pearl like nature of early morning dew.
An eloquent example of Toikka’s prolific design output.
