the series of three candle light holders by french designer paul menand has been conceived around a simple principle: the superimposition between reflection, light source and material. ‘without thread’, intensifies the illumination output in three different scenarios with a torch, bedside holder and table lamp. a collective of aluminum hexagon shapes – which depending on their size, opening and the placement of source of light – offer different kind of luminescence.
