Optical is a fine, decorative candleholder made by the Oslo designers Jonas Ravlo Stokke & Øystein Austad. The Optical candleholder is made of different geometrical shapes, in balanced relation and almost flowing inside of each other – as if they were an optical illusion.

The inspiration for the candleholder by Menu comes from the famous Bauhaus and the creative experiments with geometry they made and the attempt of finding the perfect balance between form and function.

StokkeAustad were asked what was the most important thing they think of as designers: “It is important for designers not to rely to heavily on CAD while designing. It’s a truly tremendous tool, and today industrial design would not be possible without it, but it’s important to remember that working in cardboard or foam gives you immediate answers, that are difficult to envision otherwise. Especially regarding size and proportions.”

The Optical candleholder also emerged on that way – that’s how we fast realize how both designers found the elegant proportions. Menu produces the candleholder out of powder-coated steel.
