the ‘pamoto candleholder’ by tel-aviv based designers dor tal and ofer berman, incorporates a modern interpretation for the use of clamps by applying them to fix lights in place. sourcing their idea from when they visited an old hardware store, located in the israeli city, the design integrates the craftsman tool with an elegant and smoothly finished accessory. the clamp fixes the holder to a surface such as a table, to create an interesting interaction that bonds multiple textures, materials and colors.

the clamp component positions the candlestick holder on a variety of surfaces


the height of the fixture can be adjusted to the width of the base


the design unites the smooth holder and rugged clamp with a third texture, color and/or material – the base


the idea for the pamoto candleholder was formed after dor tal and ofer berman visited an old hardware store in tel-aviv
