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!
These candle holders are from his Kastehelmi range, designed for Nuutajarvi Notsjo in the early 1960s. A beautiful blue captures candle light magically.
Like so much Finnish design, the candle holders capture the patterns of nature: the pearl like nature of early morning dew.
A small, but eloquent example of Toikka’s prolific output.
