‘match’ – tealight holder by form us with love

form us with love came up with ‘match’ when trying to light a tealight candle, constantly burning their fingers. therefore they created a candle holder with a vent where the lit match securely travels down to the tea light. the vent also doubles as an aesthetic feature, emphasizing the flickering flame.

‘gloria’ by norway

‘gloria’ by norway says ‘a new take on the traditional candlestick and it creates a very pleasant and lively atmosphere wherever you place it. it looks good with only one candle, great with four and amazing with six. it even works well with candles in different heights and colors – the composition is up to you.

  • Warm and appealingly simple.
    Its embarrassing that no one seems to have thought of this more simple, and safe, way of lighting a votive until now.
