The Focal candle lamp holder is inspired by candle lamps that were common before paraffin lights became readily available. The parabola shaped spun brass dome focuses and reflects the light from a single tea-light, creating a cozy atmosphere. Focal is intended to be hung on the wall or placed on the table or shelf. The lamp is hand crafted and assembled from solid brass in Porto Portugal.
Designed by Hallgeir Homstvedt, made by Alberto Cunha and polished by Paulo Martins in Porto, Portugal.
Material: Spun solid brass
One size 170x70x70 mm
Origin curates and produces a line of contemporary objects by bringing designers and artisans together. We invite our designers to Portugal once a year to work with local craftsmen and visit ateliers in different towns, sharing a house and meals together. All of our objects are completely or partially handmade. We work with both individual craftsmen as well as small factories to realize our designs in numbered editions.
We publish the names of our makers, not just the names of designers, because we want to do things differently, to remind ourselves that each Origin product is made by a person who could be a father, a mother, a grandfather or a daughter... something we tend to forget in our consumption-driven culture. Our goal is to foster a deeper sense of closeness between the owner of our object, and the people who made it.
Delivery time: Between 1 - 4 weeks, depending on stock and availability.
