Minimalism and playfulness are a great match. Quentin de Coster‘s NOSE candle holder illustrates this perfectly in an ultra-minimal, sculptural design. The Belgian designer has a penchant for creating simple, functional objects that feature a refined aesthetic and ingenious details but also plenty of soul. Designed with two parts, NOSE takes the clarity of the form to a whole new level.

The assembled object evokes an abstract humanoid profile, with the nose playfully acting as the candle holder. Made from laser cut, welded, and powder-coated steel, the holder is both lightweight and sturdy, as well as easy to hold and carry. The fun yet elegant silhouette brings a touch of style and creative flair to living spaces, whether used with or without a candle. NOSE is available in white, black or gray.
