Patrick de Glo de Besses of Paris has inserted a series of branched arms into this bottle-shaped base to create a candelabra.
Called Funambule, the candle holder can be configured in different ways, depending on how the branches are arranged, to hold between one and twenty five candles.
The product, made of black polyamide, is a play on the way bottles are often used as candle holders.
Funambule is currently on show as part of the "Candélabres: lueurs intimes" exhibition at Granville Gallery, Paris, until 30 December.
Photographs are by Gregory Copitet.
Here's a bit of text from the designer:
