The duo describes the new work as a celebration of old industrial processes and traditional manufacturing techniques.

For their new collection Folkform collaborated with Rosengrens, a brass foundry in Limhamn, situated about 5 kilometers outside of Malmö on the south coast of Sweden. Folkform is committed to working with local manufacturers.

They want their products to reflect the spirit and history of the place they were produced. How the product was made, and by whom is key to the narrative of the piece; it is from this that they develop a product’s aesthetic.

Candle Collage

The new collection is available in brass, bronze and aluminium. Each piece comprises a candelabra, simple tea lights, pillar candles and hand-crafted votives to create a landscape of candle typologies.

    I think the candlestick holder is great, it looks like a futuristic city-scape. Quite the shopping list of candle though.
