BCXSY designs candle+tray set inspired by curiosity cabinets
BCXSY design studio will premiere their latest Curio collection at Kazerne, Eindhoven, as an official programme of the Dutch Design Week. Consisting of a series of handcrafted candles and matching presentation trays, Curio is a homely affair that arrives just in time for cosy autumn nights. The Israeli-Japanese, but now Amsterdam-based duo worked on the commission of the Creative Industries Fund NL and for the candle company MD.
The candle set was inspired by the gathering and displaying of natural, curious specimens, a wondrous and beautiful pastime that incorporates lithology and mineralogy. BCXSY observed the originals closely and followed the fine details to create the most realistic wax versions possible.
The accompanying trays, made of powder coated steel, are kept minimal shape-wise: the simple black bars frame the candles and let their serene beauty take centre stage. Inspired by classic museum wood and glass cabinets, the trays and candles make a whole that recall the wonders of old curiosity collections not just in the collection’s name but spirit as well.
