FIRE HURRICANE Candleholder
Fire Hurricane Candleholder has a special lustre glass that beautifully reflects the surroundings when the candle is not lit – and the instance the candle is lit, the reflections dissolve and light breaks through the lustre. This makes the Hurricane a decorative element both when used, and not.
The combination of the reflective metal and mirrored lustre glass creates a very elegant and classic effect – making this a modern product that points forward in terms of design, while also pulling thoughts back to the ancient oil lamps in brass and copper.
It’s like a little bit of material magic, made to be used both indoors and outdoors. Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen from NORM explains:
Kasper: “There are a lot of disposable plastic holders and candle thingies on the market and … honestly, most of it isn’t all that pretty”.Jonas: “So we wanted to create something that was both durable and aesthetically pleasing”. Kasper: “And you can use the Fire Hurricane both indoors and outdoors, so it gets this nice multi usability feature to it, AND you can use it over and over again”.Jonas: “And again”.

Minimalism is not a modern style. Minimalism has been the norm in many cultures all over the globe since the beginning of civilization. People have strived continually for material poverty as a way to inner luxury. Reduction and perfection have been the main goal for both craftsmen and inventors – because avoiding the irrelevant meant emphasising the important.
All too often people think of design in terms of added grandness. But it is often the plain or the reduced that is the most striking.
In our work we aim for geometrical purity, a simple naturalness and a reduced authenticity for a sense of calm and repose. We want to arrive at the maximum of expressivity with the minimum of expression. In an era dripping with images, forms and sound, to reduce ends up being the most eloquent gesture.
We try to balance the visual, the tactile and the sensual to create an unusual but harmonious experience. We bridge the masculine and the feminine with an obsessive attention to detail. And we aim at creating functional objects that do not only meet the need, but also provide joy. We call it soft minimalism.
We strive for timelessness in our work. Tendencies come and go. Products should not only be durable because they are made from good materials. They should also be aesthetically durable in the sense that you can keep on looking at them and continue to find them interesting.
