The designer Paul Loebach distorted and transcribed a classic candlestick with the help of a 3D-Rendering program for distortion. The result is a candlestick that looks like it was melting or bending in the heat.
The American manufacturer areaware produces distortion out of resin and marble. The material supports the soft look which seems like it has just come out of an animated film with its distorted construction.
Despite the weird appearance, the candlestick fulfils its real duty perfectly: Distortion carries a candle firmly and especially straight so that wax does only fall on the prepared shade.
