CANDLE SNUFFER

LONG REACH & SHORT REACH

MATERIALS: steel, wood

DIMENSIONS: 30"l X 2"W X 2.25"H, 2"L x 2 W X 2.75"H

 

Growing up, special occasions and holidays were marked by candlelit dinners. As a child, snuffing the candles at the end of the evening – after dessert but before clearing the table – was so gratifying. The task required some dexterity (especially for young hands), and I loved the challenge. I still love candlelit dinners with friends and family and appreciate the candle snuffer for its elegance and efficiency – singular in its function, it safely and cleanly extinguishes a candle’s flame.


HANG UP

MATERIALS: Aluminium, Wood

DIMENSIONS: 31.75"L X 1.875"W X 35.25"H

 

A Collaboration between Henry Julier and Pete Oyler. Their collaborative work is based in their shared appreciation for high-quality industrial design. Their work is forthright and pays particular attention to economy of material, efficient production and enduring function.

Hang Up is a wall-mounted system designed for people of all heights – from 48-inch 4-year-olds to 78-inch 40-year-olds – Hang Up is a contemporary evolution of the ubiquitous Shaker peg rail. Comprised of wood elements and metal hardware, Hang Up brings things within reach via three lengths of vertical rails, providing an array of flexible hanging options.
