Candle Holder between Art and Design
The designer Arwed Guderian designed the candle holder "Gerhard" as a tribute to the candle pictures of Gerhard Richter for the Edition van Treek. As part of the Auerberg assortment, the candle holder delights with a classic sense of restraint and high-quality processing.
The jury of the German design awards 2016 found it to be an outstanding design making it the competition’s winner.
"Through the use of simple design connected with sturdy borosilicate glass, the candle holder has the potential to become a design classic and will be nominated as such! A filigree, ultra light looking home accessory that promises its lucky owners long-lasting joy."
The lantern is characterised by its reduced design, made of particularly robust borosilicate glass. The simple cylinder body undergoes a clean break in its form, which makes the holder simple to use and represents a game between open and closed surfaces. The transparent design makes the tapered candle look as if floating inside of the cylinder and thus gives the impression of a magical appearance.
Placed on the sideboard or the table, the lantern ensures a pleasant atmosphere and becomes a real eye-catcher in any environment by the resulting flares.
