A Cleverly Crafted Candlestick That Extinguishes Itself When the Candle Becomes Too Short

Norwegian designer Lars Beller Fjetland has created “Moment” a wonderfully meditative candlestick whose clever design extinguishes the flame once the candle has become too short. Moment debuted at Maison & Object during Paris Design Week 2015 (September 5 – 12) and will be distributed worldwide through Wrong for Hay.

Most of us can recall a childhood fascination with the flickering flame – mesmerized by the rhythm of the burning light; the concept of time seemed to slowly dissolve. Lars Beller’s «Moment» candle extinguisher revisits this lost meditative watch with an added reminder of its impermanence. As the flame slowly makes its way towards the bottom of the candle, the suspense builds towards its split second finale.
