why this product

Simple and unadorned, yet dramatic and bold, these polished solid brass candlesticks designed by Dutch industrial designer Richard Hutten aesthetically elevate your taper candles. With their straightforward but refined appearance, the candlesticks are characteristic of droog, which is the Dutch word for dry. This current of design aesthetics is defined by simplicity and clarity, as well as a hint of humor. The contemporary design of the candlestick is imbued with a history of over 400 years, as they are produced in a brass foundry that was founded in 1607 by King Karl XVI Gustaf of Sweden. 

use & care

Use a mild metal polish and a soft cloth. Avoid contact with water. Do not place on delicate surfaces without a tray or other protective barrier.

For safety, do not move the candlestick when candle is lit. Do not place candlesticks on or near flammable or delicate surfaces.

production & design

Founded in 1607 by King Charles IX of Sweden, Skultuna brass foundry has been in operation for over 400 years in the same location. The company is named after its strategic headquarters in the municipality of Skultuna—about 75 miles west of Stockholm and famous for some of the oldest mines in the country—not far from copper mines (brass is formed from copper and zinc) and charcoal and water power. The foundry’s first products in the 17th-century were large chandeliers. Today, the company continues to polish and mount chandeliers, while also working with some of the most renowned contemporary product designers.
