Dezeen Showroom: Swiss architecture and design practice Studioforma sought to show the high aesthetic value of waste marble with its creation of the Rotonda candle holder.

The Rotonda candle holder is made of white waste marble streaked with anthracite grey veins, obtained through a collaboration with century-old Swiss natural stone manufacturer Valsecchi Marmi.

Studioforma owner and CEO Alex Leuzinger wanted to create a design that symbolised the epitome of sustainability, beauty and nature.

He gave it a form inspired by the golden ratio – nature's formula for perfection – with eight cylinders encased in circular slabs.

The elements fit into each other and can be arranged as desired.

"The design idea is to create a profound sense of ownership by enabling everybody who purchases the Rotonda candle holder to become the master designer of their home," said Leuzinger.
