ECH is a modular candle holder that can be combined in different ways. Each candle holder is made up of 6 elements of different shapes and colors that you can combine as you wish.
It was created in tribute to the Memphis Group. This movement was founded in the early 80s under the impetus of Ettore Sottsass, bringing together his designer and architect friends including Michele de Lucchi, Nathalie du Pasquier and Andrea Branzi. A reaction to the modernist principles proclaimed until then (“form follows function”), the members of the Memphis group advocated for a design style filled with humor, inspired by 1950s kitsch, using bright colors and asymmetrical shapes.
This candle holder is one of the first objects we sold at Folks! We discovered the designer duo in the “designers makers” section of the Paris Design Flea Market in October 2017. We fell in love immediately with the creations on show as well as with their creators, who are based in Poland and both graduates of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts.

Be careful, don’t forget to put out the candle before it burns completely, otherwise the ECH may melt in contact with the flame. If the wax melts on the candle holder, just wash it gently under warm water.
We discovered this design duo in October 2017 at the “Designers-Makers” section of the Puces du Design trade fair in Paris. We were instantly charmed by the products on display and the two designers who made them, both of whom graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and run their design studio based out of Poland.
