drawn candlesticks

Inspired by chess pieces, the designer creates abstract outlines from them before strategically forging them together in a series of totemic forms.

By Paris-born Fabien Cappello.

Cappello's designs are three dimensional drawings poised somewhere between sculpture and architecture. This idea of objects in constant evolution is appropriate for a chess themed brief, as just as chess pieces are shifted across the board - so too are the candlesticks in seemingly perpetual motion. The lines and the planes of the sticks also draw parallels between the physical motion of the chess pieces.
