Dawn is a candle holder that in one piece embodies two different states of the same material.
During the manufacturing process the birch wood is exposed to heat which causes it to gradually transition into the more heat resistant charcoal. The natural tensions in the wood are also released making every piece unique.

The deep black color of the coal slowly fades into the pale, lean surface of the birch in a crossing of both color, tactile feel and material.

It may sound contradictory but woods ability to char makes it more fire resistant since charcoal is a lot less flammable than wood itself.

About the designer

Lith Lith Lundin

Our concept is based on a circle with a 50 kilometer radius. From within this area we source and process all materials for our products. Within this circle we have full control of our materials, their origin, how and by who they are processed. This way we can guarantee that the final product meets our requirements in terms of quality and environmental consideration. The geographical starting point with its local resources sets the limits of how the product is designed. The process is similar to the furniture art conditions during the 1700-1800’s, which was determinate by the shape of the available material and increasingly sophisticated local craft methods. When put in a contemporary context with a timeless design it creates a passage between the past and the present. The site-specific raw material, its properties and available finishes gives a final product that reflects its origins.

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.
