YOIN Friday 17 Oct 2014

Sweden and Japan-based design studio YOIN, formed of duo Kazuaki Hibino and Masayoshi Oya, have created ‘Kono', a product inspired by the traditional candle holder.

In Kono, organic and sculptural shapes made out of different types of metal have been used to capture the nostalgic feel of a traditional candle holder. Copper with a polished surface, plus brass and aluminium, both with a matte finished surface, create character within themselves.

Kono corresponds with YOIN's general design ethos that design should not try to be outstanding in any environment, but should connect naturally with the mind. Thus, the more you use the designed objects, the more you feel their emotional value. Kono is an exceptionally beautiful way to light up any space, any time of the day.
