Candleholder designed by Jens Harald Quistgaard for Dansk Design in the 1960s. Spike design for larger candles. It comes with the original orange candle (‘spike’ candles are sold separately too - in orange or natural)

Quistgaard, a Danish designer and sculpter, he remained the head designer for the company, for over three decades.

His designs brought the cool of Scandinavian design in homeware to America and Japan in the 1960s through to the 1980s.

This simple candle holder is a beautiful example of his clean and articulate design.

Why is it modern? It relies on its form, shape, rather than decoration to create its appeal. It is true to its materials using glass to reflect the candlelight.

His designs are influenced by the European tradition of the Bauhaus. The candleholders are modular in the way they can stack when not in use. This ‘stacking’ emulates the work of Wilhelm Wagenfeld, who designed the "Kubus" Stacking Containers in the 1930s. The design influenced everything from these candleholders to Tupperware!

Priced as one unit - one candle with one holder.
