It is a contemporary combination of mouth blown glass and polished stainless steel. Inspired by designer Ilkka Suppanen’s own experiences as an avid sailor. Drawing upon the multicoloured lights that mariners use to guide them through the rough Finnish waters, Kaasa comes in a rich yet gentle palette of colours aimed to recreate the same sense of security as the safety lights at sea give. The clear, rounded mouthblown glass design was created to mimic a pair of hands warming themselves around a flame. While the inner base is made of polished stainless steel. The Kaasa tealight candleholder reflects a soft, gentle light that brings ambience and beauty to any living space. Great gift idea.
