Girachille candle holder by Design Memorabilia

Measurements H 10,9 cm / ø 6,6 cm

H 10,9 cm / ø 6,6 cm


Materials Stainless steel, PVC

Stainless steel, PVC

Girachille is a beautiful cylinder-shaped candle holder made of stainless steel and coloured PVC. The heat of a single tealight forces this candleholder’s colorful cylinder to spin playfully. As it spins, the candleholder demontrates the playful spririt of its creator. “Start from scratch. Stick to common sense. Know your goals and means”, said designer Achille Castiglioni, whose design philosophy worked from the viewpoint that design must restructure an object’s function, form and production process. His work exemplifies the ideal of good design. A brilliant, dynamic work of art that will provide cause for endless awe. Colours will chase each other in a whirlwind of beauty. This designer item provides an excellent gift idea for your family and friends, especially for all those who never stop daydreaming and are still able to find magic in small daily things.
