Auction Item

Ineke Hans Candleholder

Made from ultra-delicate black porcelain, the five-arm candleholder is a piece from designer Ineke Hans' ingenious Black Gold collection: a modular ceramics system that uses five simple molds — a narrow cylinder, a medium cylinder, a big cylinder, a corner and a "plunger" — to create countless household vessels. She calls it "LEGO ceramics." We call it genius.

Ineke Hans is a UK-based designer from the Netherlands with roots on both sides of the English Channel: a long-running design studio in Holland, plus a research salon in London. From Britain, Hans works with her studio on the continent to design projects for leading international design manufacturers, while the salon investigates the future of furniture design and the changing position of the designer. She studied Product Design in the Netherlands and graduated with an MA in Furniture Design from the Royal College of Art in London.
