Flag is a minimalist and unconventional candleholder with a geometric and coherent shape. The Swedish designer Jonas Wagell has reinterpreted the classic candleholder.
The result: a thin candleholder in five warm colours. A long time ago, candleholders were needed to provide light at night. Today they’re used to create a cosy atmosphere. Flag’s functionality is obvious thanks to the clear reference to the traditional candleholder, yet the appearance is modern.
Using a small handle on the side, you can easily lift it up and move it.
The inspiration for the shape of Flag comes from the small flags on sea buoys used for sending signals to ships. The candleholder fits one standard household candle (approx. 22mm diameter) and with its classic appearance fits into any furnishing style. Jonas Wagell tells: ‘The language of the sea, which small buoys dance on and warm and inform ships, inspired me.The base of the candleholder is reminiscent of a floating buoy and the small handle is similar to a direction indicator.Just like the buoys, the Flag candleholder draws attention and provides light.’
