‘snug’ candle holders by sanna völker are handmade by stonemasons who have mastered their craft for four generations, dating back to 1880. all pieces are made from natural stone leftovers, some up to 500 million years old, handpicked by the designer herself from a quarry located in a small mountain village in the province of barcelona.

snug is a small, self-produced project that celebrates local craft, quality material and emotional value. the essence of the product is the material itself, expressed through a minimalist design.

stone is created and shaped by history, through shifting continents, seas and earthquakes. some tell their story through banded layers, others through fossils. and it is here, in their sheer variation, that snug finds its beauty. the two candles are trapped by the material in what becomes a brutalist yet delicate candle holder. snug is a story of craftsmanship, sustainability and transparency.
