The Valenica Candle Holders were designed by Jaime Hayon for Turkish brand Gaia & Gino and they stand out due to their sleek geometric pattern that combines modernity, elegance and luxury.
“The optical projects explores, through shapes, incisions and sanding, variations of light effect on crystal. The different techniques are used to invite or challenge light’s entry and create playful effects that allow us to discover the magic of light inside crystal structures.” All the patterns on Valencia collection are sandblasted by hand.
The design combines pure geometric shapes such as cubes, cylinders and hexagons, positioned one on top of the other in an asymmetrical layout. The result is a modern candle holder characterized by a discreet luxury.
The Valencia collection includes both conventional candle holders and small tea-light holders. The candleholders are available in 5 different shapes and the tealight holders are available in 4 different shapes.
