About

White travertine sculpted candleholder by Sanna Völker The size of the candleholder is 15 x 3 x 9 cm, designed to be used with drip-less candles of size Ø22 mm. All pieces are handcrafted in natural stone. This results in variations in color and texture, where each piece is unique (especially the red travertine version has very notable variations). All products are sold untreated and don’t require additional treatments over time. Snug candle holders by Sanna Völker are handmade by stonemasons who have mastered their craft for four generations, dating back to 1880. All pieces are made from natural stone leftovers, some up to 500 million years old, handpicked by the designer herself from a quarry located in a small mountain village in the province of Barcelona. Snug is a small, self-produced project that celebrates local craft, quality material and emotional value. The essence of the product is the material itself, expressed through a Minimalist design. Stone is created and shaped by history, through shifting continents, seas and earthquakes. Some tell their story through banded layers, others through fossils. And it is here, in their sheer variation, that Snug finds its beauty. The two candles are trapped by the material in what become a Brutalist yet delicate candleholder. Snug is a story of craftsmanship, sustainability and transparency. Sanna Völker is a Swedish born designer of objects and furniture who works in the interface between Scandinavia and Spain. ? Her designs have been exhibited in Milan, Paris, Barcelona, Brussels and Cologne. ? Her work can be described as a search for equilibrium between rawness and refinement, harmony and intrigue. Her designs often draw references to architecture and brutalism, manifested in furniture and objects of pure shapes. Human intervention in nature and society is a theme that she often explores in detail. Working with natural materials her pieces consists of clean geometries coupled with timeless expression.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
