Designer Nicolas Le Moigne has created a candelabra with candle holders that are held in place with magnets.
Says Le Moigne, this "allows you to vary the compositions by adding other elements such as fruits, flowers or boxes of matches. The candlestick is a key component of table arrangements which [because of the the modularity and flexibility of Ependes] is now freed of time of day, moods or seasons."
Nicolas Le Moigne is one of 11 designers Swiss furniture producer Workshop Pfister challenged to create a collection of "bold" Swiss-made objects. Alfredo Häberli, as curator, personally selected the project participants. Among them, besides Nicolas Le Moigne, Atelier Oi, Jörg Boner, and Adrien Rovero Fulguro developed sofas, armchairs, tables and accessories.
