description

A A cast-iron candleholder in a round form where the top of the ball breaks into a petal form that folds back on in on itself to form embrace the candle, this design is known as Flowerbud.
The candle holder was designed by the team Christer & Christel Holmgren, who also designed pieces for Holmegaard. It is stamped to the "Made in Denmark and Pat pend" which we presume to mean that the patent was pending.
The candle holder is an excellent condition and is an excellent example of Mid century modern Scandinavian design. We have 2 examples on offer.

Industrial, product and graphic design duo Christel & Christer Holmgren, better known as C&C Holmgren, were born in Vienna and Malmš respectively, and studied design in their Austrian and Swedish homelands before moving to Denmark in the 1960s.
From 1973 to 1974, C&C Holmgren designed a range of stylish and practical cast-iron candleholders.he candleholders were produced on a fully automatic patented moulding machine called Disa Matic, known worldwide in the iron casting industry. This allowed the candleholders to be produced at a relatively low price per article, and made them accessible to a wide audience.
