In the Nordic mythology Heima means home or world, but Heima also is the name of the new big candle holder from Normann Copenhagen. It is a four-armed candle holder made of cast iron in a minimalistic, Nordic design by Francis Cayouette.
During the interpretation of the classic candle holder, the Canuck Francis Cayouette was inspired by the Nordic culture of the open chimney fire and the applied arts movement of the 50es, which worked with cast iron. The result is a candle holder with a recognizable design, which pays tribute to the industrial craftsmanship and the Nordic tradition. The rough, almost cold surface gives the big candles holder Heima character, while the rounded shapes are combined forming modern design.
Francis Cayouette explains: „Arts and crafts must have recognition value and a history. I have always been fascinated by the Nordic tradition of lightning and coziness from living flames and it was an obvious choice to work with the candlestick. Cast iron is an exciting raw material that has been used for many years. It is palpable and adds contours. The Heima candlestick is simple and does not steal the show, but instead makes room for its actual function, namely living flame.“
Normann Copenhagen suggests using warm water and a dry tissue to clean the Heima candleholder. If undesired wax traces remain at Heima, place the product on a piece of baking paper. After about five minutes at 250°C, take Heima out of the oven and clean the resting wax away. Please note that the object will be extremely hot then!
