Tipp is both classically timeless and playful by Charlotte von der Lancken – Klong

Design: Charlotte von der Lancken
Decorative, striking, surprising. Three words that aptly describe Charlotte von der Lancken’s new product for Klong. Tipp is both classically timeless and playful. The design reveals the candle flame and reflects it beautifully on the inside of the angled cylinder. A product that is beautiful on its own but also creates fantastic settings and effects when grouped. The three different heights combine to bring out an attractive dynamic.

“I wanted to create something simple and timeless, yet also poetic and functional.”
