Flag Candlestick (2012)
Normann Copenhagen, Denmark
Flag is a minimalist and funky candlestick with a geometric and rigid expression. The Swedish designer Jonas Wagell has created this new interpretation of the classical chamber candlestick – a light candle holder in five warm colours.
In the old days, the chamber candlestick was used to provide light at night. With clear references to the chamber candlestick, Flag has a recognisable function and modern expression and is easily moved by picking up the little flag. Designed to hold a single candle, the candlestick has a classic expression that would suit any interior style.
Jonas Wagell explains: “I was inspired by the language used at sea, where small flags on buoys warn and inform sailors. The base of the candle stick resembles a floating buoy and the little handle a semaphore flag. In the same way as the buoys, the Flag candle stick attracts attention and creates light.”
The Flag candle stick was annonced "Buy of the Month" in Elle Decoration UK after the launch in June 2012!
Flag is a candlestick designed to be suitable for metal casting. This is a rational method which allows the product to be made in one piece and also gives it weight and stability. Die-casting is cost-efficient and makes the product price-worthy and available for many people. Flag is made of zinc alloy, which is durable and enables nice and precise details.
