This week, set your heart on fire with a special Valentine’s Day edition of our OTHR launch exclusive: the 3D printed bronze Trois Candleholders by New York City-based designer Brad Ascalon, in Trois Grande and Trois Petite.
The Trois Candleholder is a simple gesture intended to elevate the candle’s role in its design. Its reductive form creates an instant atmosphere primed for a dinner party or romantic evening.
Its vertical branches extend from the holder’s foundation to simply and elegantly support the candle, with a shape that mimics a slow drip of wax making its way into the base.
The inspiration for this reductive candleholder originated from a fortune cookie’s words of wisdom that hang above the designer’s desk: “Everything should be made as simple as possible… but not simpler.” This phrase has become a mantra for Ascalon, and is reflected in the simplicity and functionality of his object: three arms simultaneously provide as much and as little support as needed for the candle to remain stable.
Born near Philadelphia, Brad Ascalon was immersed in the world of art and design from an early age. After a detour into advertising and music, Brad graduated with a Masters’ degree in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute and founded Brad Ascalon Studio NYC just a year later. The studio has created globally-exhibited furniture, packaging, consumer products and installation art projects.
