The story behind the German candle classic
The Stoff Nagel Candlestick is an icon of German design from the post-war period. Its history begins already 20 years before the first design with the family Nagel , who lived in a small village near Cologne after the Second World War and earned their living with handmade ashtrays, vases and candlesticks.
It was then the unusual geometric shape that made the candlestick a topic of conversation in the art and design scene in the late 60s and brought it into countless homes and apartments. The idea came to Hans Nagel during a fall on a skiing vacation. He was so fascinated by the symmetry that three of his fingers had left in the snow after the fall that, together with Werner, he created Stoff the Stoff Nagel candleholder.
After the candlestick was no longer available for decades, it is now being sold by the Danish company Stoff Nagel Copenhagen after the original drawings of Hans Nagel and Werner Stoff relaunched. Originally made of brass, the candlestick for three stick candles is now also available in other materials
