New Finnish Suomi Nordic Design Leaning candleholder in walnut wood by Tonfisk Design

Tonfisk Design Finland is proud to announce the launch of a new product the DEGREES° Candleholder at the Asuntomessut in Jyäskylä, Finland 11.7 – 10.8.2014

The new DEGREES° candleholder sets itself apart from other candleholders as the candle stands at a few degrees. The basic shape of the candleholder is a cube with part, but not all, of the base cut away at an angle. This means the candle stands at a slight angle and give the cube the sense that it has sunk into the table, with one corner of it base standing free. The DEGREES° candleholder is made of solid wood finished with wood wax. The candle is held in a brass cup.

The design of the DEGREES° candleholder is by Tonfisk founder, Irish-Finnish designer Brian Keaney. Keaney founded Tonfisk to produce objects which are not mere variations. DEGREES° continues Tonfisk Design's 15 year history of introducing alternative but functional Nordic designs. The design originated from the desire to create a simple but arresting candleholder with an interesting spatial element.

The DEGREES° candleholder is being launched in one size of 9 x 9 x 9cm in solid walnut. Further sizes and wood options are planned for autumn 2014. It will be available initially only directly from Scandinavian design brand Tonfisk Design at www.tonfisk-design.fi
