Designed by French-Canadian Francis Cayouette for Danish brand Normann Copenhagen, the Heima candlestick recently earned an IF Product Design Award 2010. It is a four-armed candlestick made of cast iron in a minimalist, recognizable design inspired by Nordic traditions and craftsmanship. The line also includes a plate, a tea light candlestick, a block candle holder, a (single) candlestick,

The minimalist candlestick is sculptured and fits beautifully into both modern and classic decors. According to Nordic mythology Heima means home, and the Heima candlestick will surely bring warmth and coziness to yours!

“Arts and crafts must have a recognisability and a history. I have always been fascinated by the Nordic tradition of lighting and cosiness from living flames and it was an obvious choice to work with the candlestick. Cast iron is an exciting raw material that has been used for many years. It is palable and adds contours. The Heima candlestick is simple and does not steal the show, but instead makes room for its actual function, namely living flame.” – Francis Cayouette
