KiBiSi's new collection of candleholders reveal historic icons with a modern twist.

If you admire historic artefacts and symbols of a different era then KiBiSi’s new collection of candleholders will delight your appreciation of gothic period objects.

Scandinavian design studio KiBiSi created a range of candleholders referencing the iconic typology of chamber candlestick holders.

“Weight Here” is made from Polystone and cast iron, revealing the studio’s commitment to blending traditional methods and materials with modern techniques and elements.

The cast iron parts acknowledge historic artisanal techniques and the Polystone references KiBiSi’s link to modern architecture, says the studio.

“Weight Here” is available in four versions: S and M for ordinary candles and L and XL for block candles. All holders have been rethought and reworked to fit the many shapes and forms of candles available today.
