DNIPRO

DNIPRO

Candleholders DNIPRO are the result of our favorite design approach – playing with scale.
Dnipro is the city we live in. It is industrial center of the region.
Every day each inhabitant of Dnipro sees some elements of industrial environment whether it is a pipe, a blast furnace, a silage, a tank, a cooling tower, a water tower etc. Industrial landscape is basically printed inside our minds. And many people now throughout the world are living in industrial cities as postindustrial society. A lot of our parents or grandparents worked at factories. Now the situation is different, industry doesn’t require a lot of workers. But still industrial past is with us. So we thought that we shouldn’t forget our roots. Because of that we decided to bring industrial aura inside people’s homes.
Small sculptures reminding of panorama of their native cities can now stand anywhere around their house. By adding candle light inside of it we add warm memories from our childhood.
