A new Copenhagen design house, NewWorks combine their Scandinavian sensibility with love of raw industrial materials. Their collection focuses on materials such as concrete, marble and raw metals, with all of the pieces sourced from up-and-coming Scandi designers. David Taylor has designed the NewWorks Crowd candleholders, a beautiful trio of industrial accessories. Taylor apparently loves working with industrial materials because they inspire the construction process. This is clear from his finished works, each candleholder almost sculpture-like and transforming a difficult material like concrete into an elegant home accessory.
We love the play with scales, the top-heavy appearance of this design and the contrasting industrial and luxe materials. But why pick a favourite? There’s no question that the candleholders look most striking when they’re displayed together as a trio. What do you think of New Works and their luxe Scandinavian approach to industrial design? We believe they are definitely one to watch! In the meantime, take a look at other copper, concrete and industrial trends we’ve covered lately.
