Aye Aye! is a family of rugged, round and bold iron cast candle holders inspired by the time of adventure and discovery, when the enthusiasm of the Industrial Revolution revealed the world to travellers and fortune seekers.
The fleet is composed of four sizes – from a small tugboat with one funnel to a hefty steamship with four big ones. All navy-themed colours are available: red, blue, black and grey. Each funnel is designed to fit either a tea-light candle for cosy harbour light or a taper candle as a pillar of steam.
Aye Aye! vessels can be combined in any size and number and create various themes that will be easy to adjust to different happenings and backgrounds. One narrow piece will look pleasant on a window sill and distract the solitude. Aligned in a row the pieces will resemble a naval fleet, lighting a fire within. Scattered on a dining table the vessels will seem to sail into an archipelago of plates sparkling good mood for conversation. Because of its shape and mental connections Aye Aye! family feels dynamic although it doesn’t float allowing for any composition, let it be carefully made or left over from last night.
Drawing its inspiration from Industrial Revolution the Aye Aye! family is iron cast and powder coated for its colours. Additional space around the candles acts as an extra safe-zone. A ship is a safe island in an ocean and Aye Aye! is a safe place for a fire at home. Being iron cased the vessels are quite heavy, therefore stable and hard to flip (not on water where they sink like rocks). Each vessel is sturdy as a rock and a bold design item yet simple enough not to become distracting.
The Aye Aye! fleet revokes nostalgia like a candle holder should. The feeling grows stronger combined with the beloved marine theme. As a result Aye Aye! is a universally appealing design item which, through personalised selection of shapes, colours and combinations can be tailored for individual taste and lifestyle.
