What could be better than a group of flowers that never fades?
Inspired by the French poppy fields, Swedish designer and craftsman Matti Klenell created Coquelicot – A lovely series of tea light candle holders. They are produced in 5 different shapes and colors, and can be used on a flat surface, in any combination.

“My intention was to create a candle holder that reflects and takes use of the surrounding light just as well as the light coming from the flame it carries. I wanted to see if the immaterial light could bind different shapes together creating one unity. (…) By placing the leaf shaped cups on stems in various heights they start to reflect and emit each other, creating a poetic unity of light, shadow and color” – Matti Klenell

Matti Klenell graduated from Konstfack , Stockholm, in 1999. He counts top brands as clients, such as Muuto, Svenskt Tenn, BRIO, and Moooi, among others. Check out his website for more information.
