‘Les gaufres’ is a collection of candle holders representing the Belgian waffle. The collection basically exists as ‘La gaufre Liegeoise’ and ‘La gaufre Bruxelloise’ which can be used with normal candles (23 mm). ‘Les gaufres de ma grand-mère/an ode to great memories’ is a scaled version with different sizes (from small to large) to be used with candles with a diameter of 15 mm.

Les gaufres can be seen as a modular puzzle, assembled out of different parts, in which it is also possible to create larger wholes by combining more sets, leaving its typical form. The larger waffles also work as a coaster for pots and pans.

About the designer

Bram Kerkhofs

BRAM KERKHOFS (° 1977) is a Belgian furniture designer looking for new forms and methods to challenge the functionality and flexibility of a furniture piece. Educated as a goldsmith he is fascinated by connections, hinges and joints, and especially by the forces and opportunities they generate. His work is full of mathematics and algorithms. Shapes, concepts, techniques and materials are always matched, with a lasting alertness to the final function, bringing simplicity into complexity. This time-intensive design and development process always results in unique objects that automatically express his signature. Many of his designs must be seen in a larger picture, as parts to a whole, in which he explores the endless possibilities for links, combinations and variations. Bram also designs unique concepts, linking stories, functions and techniques to specific contexts. Bram wants to clarify complex constructions and gives the consumer and the spectator insight into his thinking process. That is why his work partly revolves around people, as the manipulators of his modular furniture, as wearers of his jewellery, but above all, Bram aims to influence through collaborations with his apprentices and students and with the wider world around him through workshops and lectures al around the globe.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
