Inspired by the quintessential fingerheld candle holder of days gone by, the finger loop is a minimal interpretation.

How do I clean wax off it? Dip in hot water to melt the wax and polish off with a dry soft cloth. Do not scrub as it may remove the chroming. Alternatively, put the candelabra in the freezer for a few hours which will enable you to break the hardened wax clean off.
What if my candles don't fit? We usually advise to get a candle sharpener or slightly melt the bottom to make it stick to the inside.
Designing the loop range was very different to other design projects. The ever changing radius is inspired by
the ‘Fibonacci Curve’ that is seen throughout nature and looks balanced and in proportion to the human eye.
We start with a piece a straight wire and bend it by hand until the form is perfect. It’s very difficult to design
on a computer, and is much more of a sculptural hands on approach to design. Once we have found the
perfect shape, the challenge is then trying to replicate it. Because the shapes have an ever changing radius
that often bend back on themselves, it is not possible to use an automated wire bending machine. We were
lucky to find a skilled wire bending company who use custom made mandrels to hand bend the wire to shape.
The mandrels are like sculptures and the wire goes through five different ones to make the desired shape.
