Set of Two Candleholders Gemini

by Peter Karpf

In Stock


The Gemini Candleholder was designed by Danish architect and designer Peter Karpf in 1965. Peter Karpf has always been fascinated by the living flame and therefore designed a candleholder with not one but two flame holders. Based on his belief that we live in an age of noise and stress, he created the Gemini Candleholder to counter these effects. Inspired by the beauty of possibility, the Gemini candleholder is a perfect union of form and function. Designed mathematically to allow for the candles to be the smallest distance apart while still remaining stable, the Gemini stands out for its clean lines and simple purity. Shaped in polished stainless steel like a half circle the Gemini Candleholder provides an all-neutral and harmonious course from flame to flame. The open shape allows for combinations of an endless number of Gemini Candleholders. The Gemini Candleholders are part of the Architectmade's collection and are sold as a set of two.
