This candleholder is made from a single block of turned cast aluminium. For the designer it is this detail - which could escape the attention of many - that is the true highlight of this design, since it confers uniqueness on the object and makes it assume the identity of a true mechanical piece, individually worked in the metal shop and finished with mat brushing.
Peter Zumthor was born in Basel in 1943. He is one of the most interesting international architects of the 21st century. Having studied at the Schule fuer Gestaltung in Basel and at the Pratt Institute in New York, he then renovated various protected buildings in the canton of Graubünden, before opening his own studio in 1979. His main works include the Sogn Benedetg Chapel in Somvitg (1988), the thermal baths in Vals (1996), the Kunsthaus in Bregenz (1997) and the Swiss Pavilion at the Expo 2000 in Hanover.
