About

An ode to Bauhaus

This year's Christmas candle from Normann Copenhagen is inspired by the characteristic typography of the Bauhaus School in an ode to the 100th anniversary of this iconic design movement. Graphic figures constitute the only decoration on the candle, whose geometric elements subtly allude to the classic form of Christmas tree decorations and the sharp edges of gift tape.

The dispersed placement of the numbers around the candle is a twist on the classic advent candle and encourages the beholder to pay extra attention to its Christmas countdown. Place the advent candle on the Heima block candle holder for a complete modern esthetic.
Designer

Sofia Bordoni

Sofia Bordoni was educated in industrial design and multimedia at the IUAV University of Architecture in Venice, Italy. She has worked within the field of graphic design for various design studios and cultural organizations, and is now employed at Normann Copenhagen where she works with both graphic and product design. Sofia is an observer and when something catches her interest and curiosity, a design process already begins to unfold in her mind. For Sofia this is a very accurate process, through which she channels her attention to detail and keen eye for shapes, colors and typography into timeless and emotive designs.

“I love recalling my childhood, which was filled with colors, paper, pencils and handicrafts, and where an obsession towards various creative fields started to grow in me. Photography: developing analog photos. Architecture: seeing buildings as shapes, volumes and material combinations. Typography: observing letters as shapes with an entrenched character. Upon realizing that graphic design is the field that is capable of bringing together all of these passions, I followed it with enthusiasm.”
