New Apple Green Kivi candleholder from Iittala and Marimekko! A little information about the Kivi candleholder that has been in production for over 20 years:
Heikki Orvola designed the Kivi candleholder out of a commission from Marimekko in 1988, and its production began at Iittala Group’s glass factory in Nuutajärvi, Finland. “When I got the commission, I knew what they wanted from me: a Scandinavian glass candleholder. I gave it some thought and then that ‘blunt piece of tubing’ began to take shape in my mind”, describes Orvola. At the same time, Orvola designed also fabric prints for Marimekko.
The Kivi candleholder represents the licensing collaboration between Marimekko and Iittala, where Marimekko owns the design and Iittala has the right for production. Today, the candleholder is available in over 22 beautiful and atmospheric colorways.
