Down to the Wire

The latest candle holders and vases tap into the thin-rimmed aesthetic.

Down to the Wire 01

1 Lup by Hay
With its looped handle, Lup looks like an ultra-minimal version of the old portable candlestick. Designed by Shane Schneck, it’s made of aluminum wire in copper or black with a triangular or square base.

2 Kishu by Maya Selway
Resembling an incomplete sketch, Maya Selway’s oxidized copper vase comes with a shallow silver dish to hold stems. The London designer, who trained as a silversmith and jewel­ler, also makes similarly delicate candle holders, bowls and bottles.  ­

You can place any drinking glass on the wooden base of this simple design from Germany’s Ding3000 to support flowers with the help of the steel wire and loop.  ­
