'Allas' candelabrum by Andreas Engesvik for Iittala

Oslo-based furniture and industrial designer Andreas Engesvik has collaborated with the world-famous Finnish tableware manufacturer Iittala to create this cast-iron ‘modern take on a traditional candelabrum’. Called ‘Allas’ – Finnish for ‘pool’ – the design is fittingly described by its manufacturer as ‘a pool of light’ – an effect achieved thanks to the six candles, each set at a different height, for which the candelabrum is intended for.

More about ‘Allas’:

 

The idea of the Allas candelabrum was born while the designer was having dinner with friends:
“I was sitting with friends enjoying a lamb roast on a dark autumn evening. The dining table was filled with an assortment of different candleholders and I was looking at the reflection their light gave off on the windows. The candles, set at different heights, created a beautiful image in the window and were a strong source of light and atmosphere. The plates on the table and the reflections of light provided the inspiration for a pool full of light.”
