According to the Nordic mythology Heima means “home” or “world” as well. The designer Francis Cayouette chose the concept for his series of cast iron candlesticks. The uneven nearly cold surface gives the Heima candlestick its own character, while its round form makes it look modern.
The Heima single candlestick is inspired in the Nordic open fire culture and in art movements of the 1950es, where the principal material that was used, was cast iron. Heima pays tribute to the commercial craftsmanship and the Nordic tradition.
The designer Francis Cayouette explains: ”Handicraft has to have recognition value and history. I have always been fascinated by open fireplaces and the work on the candlestick was a choice that I offered as a self-evident thing to do. Cast iron is an exciting raw-material that is in use for a long time now. It is god to handle and it gives contours to the candlestick. The Heima candlestick is simple and does not steal the show to any other object instead it offers room for its actual function, namely the real fire.”
The minimalist candle holder consists of cast iron and was created for the comfortable togetherness in a friendly atmosphere. It is hand-made and can perfectly be integrated in modern and classic décors.
