Vibert II Candleholder in Burnished Brass with Glass Funnel by Lluis Clotet

$235per item

About

These candleholders come in two different sizes and shapes, a phial and a bell, that symbolize a hurricane by Lluìs Clotet. It’s perfect for outdoor windy summer evenings. Lluis Clotet graduated with a degree in architecture at his native city's Escuela Técnica Superior De Arquitectura in 1965 (a year after its founding) with his friends Pep Bonet, Cristian Cirici and Oscar Tusquets. The design studio is still one of the most important and original manifestations of the Barcelona school. United by a common cause, the four musketeers of catalan went on to produce witty and refreshing ironic architecture that epitomised the inevitable contradictions of Spain's multifaceted critical climate at the time. Clotet's subsequent and more personal collaboration with Oscar Tusquets lasted until 1983 and resulted in major achievements like; the Villa Regàs, Belvedere in Llofriu (Gerona 1970-1972; widely regarded by critics as a one of the first postmodernist buildings), the Villa Vittoria on the island of Pantelleria (1972-1975), the La Balsa Restaurant in Barcelona (winner of the fad prize in 1979), the project for a high school in the district of Raval (1980-1981), the restoration and extension of the Palau De La Mùsica Catalana in Barcelona (1981-1983), the Banca De Espana in Gerona, the project for the extension of the faculty of medicine of the Barcelona University (1979-1982), and the competition project for the Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt (1983). His more recent work with Ignacio Paricio includes the Palacio De Los Deportes in Granada (1992), the Viviendas of the Olympic Village in Barcelona (1992) and the municipal swimming-POOL in Badalona (1995). Clotet taught design from 1977 to 1984, and was one of the founding partners of B.D. Ediciones De Diseño - a company designs internationally acclaimed furniture and objects.

About the Manufacturer

Driade

Italian furniture brand Driade offers modern designs that are joyful, whimsical and slightly mischievous — words that might be used to describe the tree nymph of Greek mythology for which the company is named. Faye Toogood’s chunky, stout Roly Poly armchair and Fabio Novembre’s enigmatic Nemo chair — in which a backrest assumes the form of a human face — are just two examples of Driade’s eclectic furnishings.

Driade was founded in 1968 by brother and sister Enrico and Antonia Astori, and Adelaide Acerbi Astori, Enrico’s wife. Described by the company as a “factory of art,” Driade was focused solely on bringing distinctive and creative seating, case pieces and decorative objects to market in its early years. The brand sought to mass-produce decor and furniture that could also be seen as provocative works of art.

Driade's initial collaborations included Italian designers such as Enzo Mari, Nanda Vigo, Giotto Stoppino and Rodolfo Bonetto, to name a few. In the 1980s, the brand worked with influential and renowned designers from around the globe. In 1984, Driade partnered with French designer Philippe Starck and debuted his iconic Costes armchair during the same year. Projects with architects and furniture designers such as Ron Arad, Toyo Ito, Borek Sipek, Patricia Urquiola and others followed into the 2000s.

Over more than five decades — the company celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2018 — Driade’s fruitful partnerships have culminated in a vast catalog of chairs, sofas, coffee tables and other furnishings for the home and garden that evoke a unique and diverse blend of cultures.

Driade has also garnered international acclaim, winning the Compasso d’Oro award in 1979 and 2001 for Enzo Mari’s Delfira chair and ebony-finished, chipboard-top table, and again in 2008 for Ron Arad’s MT3 rocking armchair.

On 1stDibs, discover a range of vintage and contemporary Driade tables, cabinets, armchairs and other furniture.
