The Swedish designer, Pontus Ny, has reinterpreted the classic chamber candlestick and stripped the design to the bone. In this way, he was able to focus on the relationship between the candlestick and the candle itself.
Candlelight's ability to add ambience to its surroundings fascinated Pontus Ny and formed the basis for the design of Nocto. Just like the classical chamber candlestick, Nocto has a handle that makes it easy to move, and its name also refers to the chamber candlestick's original function - to provide light at night.
Pontus Ny explains: "Candlelight has a special kind of timeless energy and aura that I find very inspiring. I wanted to highlight that in this candlestick. It was important for me to give the design time to rest for a period to be sure that such elements as proportions, angles and radii were exactly as they should be to give the proper effect."
