This candleholder was made by the Danish company Digsmed and designed by the Danish designer Jens Quistgaard in 1964. They are made from teak and cast iron.

 

The candles for this type of candleholders can sometimes be difficult to find, so we asked our supplier of beeswax candles, to produce the candles especially for these 0.7cm candleholders. You can find them here.

 

Jens Harald Quistgaard (1919-2008) was a Danish sculptor and designer.Already from the mid-1950s, his tableware and kitchenware designs became synonymous with Scandinavian modern, a design movement characterized by simplicity, minimalism and functionality.

For 3 decades he was the chief designer at the company Dansk Design. His work has been featured at several of the most famous design and art museums in the world. Still to this day, he is praised the world over, for his functional, yet beautiful designs.
