jonathan sabine: array

the dishes can be used as individual candle holders

array is a combination candle holder and dish designed by jonathan sabine. each of the dishes can be stacked into a customizable candelabra. through array, sabine explored the process of sand casting. both the asymmetrical form of the candle holder and the mechanical relationship (close fit, arrayed from a central axis) between pieces when stacked are derived from the types of parts that are traditionally made using this process. here, sabine has deliberately left the sand-textured surface and part lines to reveal the idiosyncrasies of the sand casting process. array is cast in aluminum and is available in a black or white powder coat finish.
