Part of a series of new works being presented at the 2013 London Design Festival, the vase is joined by a series of candle holders.

For the candle holder collection, Pascal worked with glass blowers, ceramicists and stone carvers to create objects that explore the possibilities of the archetypal dinner stick candle.

"Candles are interestingly between indispensable and superfluous, being used both for light during power cuts and as an atmosphere accessory." says Pascal.

This highlights the simple nature of candles, that can be seen as a slow-object, in opposition to hyper technological environments and can answer the need of essential things"

For his vase, Pascal work on the association of two materials. The weight of the marble contrasts with the lightness of the glass. More at Romain Pascal.
