The holders can be used as separates or stacked up in different ways using a hidden connecting plug.
Sand-cast aluminium has been used for the holders and the connecting plug is made from brass.
The Assembly design studio was founded this year by Oyler and Nora Mattingly, and is located between New York City and Western Massachusetts.
Here's some more information:
Sand casting has been used by artists and in industry for centuries. Wanting an elegantly raw look, Oyler looked to this age old process for these versatile candlesticks. Sand cast in aluminum, each is slightly different in finish. Featuring a hidden brass plug, these candlesticks can be stacked in myriad ways or used as separates and accommodate a ¾” candle.
A versatile designer and thinker, Pete Oyler's design work has been showcased (inter)nationally. After completing his BA in Art History and Critical Theory, Oyler studied woodworking in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina at Penland School of Crafts. Following his time there, he worked in various studios expanding his technical repertoire to include metal working, concrete casting, and mold making. In 2009 he received his MFA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and his thesis body of work won RISD's Award of Excellence. In 2010 Oyler was featured in Surface Magazine’s Avant Guardian issue and in 2012 Oyler was named one of Forbes' top 30 under 30 for Art & Design.
