Flat cast iron tealight holder
The tealight holder Heima from Normann Copenhagen is the little brother of the award-winning Heima Candlestick. The tealight holder is made of robust cast iron and comes in a minimalist, Nordic design.
According to Nordic mythology Heima "Home" or "world". The designer Francis Cayouette has chosen the term for his series of cast-iron candleholders. The uneven, almost cold surface gives Heima tealight holder character, while the round shapes make it look modern.
The Heima Tealight holder is inspired by the Nordic culture of open fires and the arts and crafts movement of the 1950s, whose primary material was cast iron. Heima pays tribute to the craftsmanship and Nordic tradition.
Fireplace fire as inspiration for the designer
Designer Francis Cayouette explains: "Handicrafts must have a recognition value and a history. I have always been fascinated by the Nordic tradition of lighting and cosiness through open fires and working on the candleholder was a choice that came naturally. Cast iron is an exciting raw material that has been in use for many years. It is easy to touch and gives the candleholder contours. The candleholder Heima is simple and does not steal the show from anyone, but instead offers space for its actual function, namely the open fire."
For cleaning the Heima Tea light holder recommends Normann Copenhagen warm water and a dry cloth. Should unwanted wax residues on Heima place the product on a layer of baking paper in the oven. After five minutes at about 250° C take Heima from the oven and wipe off the remaining wax. Caution: The object will be very hot.
