Dervish by Item for Innermost

| 5 comments

Designers Item of Paris and London have created a candelabra for design brand Innermost where three holders are kept upright by magnets.

Called Dervish, the product is made of steel and resin, and comes in a gold, glossy black or polished stainless steel finish.

It was launched at Maison&Objet in Paris earlier this year.

Here's some text from Innermost:

    in the first pic the bases look very flat like they could stand up on their own anyway
    if your gonna do something like that make the bottoms rounded or pointed, the point of the design is after all that they are magnetized
    its all a bit meh really..
