Holocene No. 5: David Chipperfield
Holocene No. 5 explores the play of reflections, as well as the idea of a simple piece that can be used in different ways. It uses the age-old trick of combining a sconce with a mirror to increase the reflection of light – here in a striking version that is both contemporary and timeless enough for any setting. While entirely crafted from steel, its wall bracket and candleholder are coated with a rich, deep shade of red oxide, creating a bold contrast to the highly polished surface of the wall mirror. The holder can also be removed and used on its own, or with a matching candlestick for added height.
