Up for auction: 3 unique candle holders by the designer Sebastiaan Vos.

These candle holders are and unused and will be supplied in the original packaging.

This candle holder is named LIFTY. When the tea light burns, the flame slowly rises due to the counterweight.

These candle holders are made of stainless steel and measure approx. 20 cm in length.

These candle holders are a fantastic gift for the festive season but maybe even better to keep for yourself.

The design makes the transition from solid to gas visible. Weight reduction is visible through movement.

Sebastiaan Vos started in 1992 with the designs that represent the story of the metaphor of the candle flame.

First, a moving candle holder was made, which was named ‘Kantelaar’ (tilter). The sale of this Kantelaar was a great success.

Sebastiaan observed the play of lines that was created between the Kantelaar and the objects around it. The candle burns down and the weight is reduced. The loss of weight is the driving force.

Then it became clear that the shortening of the candle and the warmth of the flame can also serve as a motor.

With those three functions of the burning candle flame, the idea for the Triptych was born.

Recently, more than fifteen years later, the triptych project was completed with the design of the MOA (Motion Of Air) as a capstone.

Each design is unique and has its own place in the space. These three designs are independent and do not have to stand side by side as a triptych. However, with a set-up of Kantelaar, Luxus and Moa together, it creates a surprising insight into what a flame is capable of.

The lot will be adequately packaged and sent by registered mail by PostNL in The Netherlands and via DHL Parcel Post abroad.
