It was the desire to create an object that can be used as a symbol of taking amental breathing space, which inspired the idea for ANGEL. And that openedup the possibility of a creative collaboration with the design duo Steffensen & Würtz.
”After a very hectic period, it became clear to me, how essential it is to remember tounpluck now and then. And I wanted to create an object that could be a reminder ofthe importance of drawing energy from daily mental pauses. At first I only wrote downwords to clarify what needed to be expressed in the design.
"And the more thoughts, sketches and experiments I worked my way through, itbecame clear to me that this object had to be reduced to its simplest form -but that a strong symbolic had to be used to communicate the story about searchingfor peace of mind. And the silhouette with the halo raised above the flame of thecandle was shaped.
”When form and story were about to connect, it felt right to involve Thomas (Steffensen)and Pia (Würtz) in the finishing process. Including others makes you look at the object withfresh eyes and the details are refined. Same thing happened here. Thomas and Pia have atraditional Danish design background. They say:
"For us design is a matter of matter of honesty, curiosity, precision and then it is verymuch about creating products that are interesting, functional and value adding.
The result is an ANGEL, supposed to create an atmosphere of peace, without making agreat fuss of itself.
ANGEL is a candleholder. Or. Maybe a little candle installation which plays witha religious symbol. Just as when a child is dressed up as an angel, it carries itshalo on a stick that trembles stilly when stir occurs around it. And magic mightoccur when darkness falls and the ANGEL casts a halo-like shadow on the ceiling above.
