Description

This artfully sculpted candle holder is a testament to innovative reuse, handcrafted from repurposed beam wood and remnants of pristine white stone. With delicate precision, I’ve enhanced the wood using the traditional Japanese Yakisugi method, and it’s then elegantly finished with natural oils and sealed with beeswax. Beneath, a subtle cork lining ensures your surfaces remain pristine.

A distinguished member of the ‘Melting Collection’, this piece is emblematic of a world grappling with the alarming pace of climate change—a narrative largely driven by human endeavors. The daily sights of receding ice caps and thawing tundras bear witness to this. In its design, the melding of wood and stone emerges as a potent symbol, reminding us of the collective imperative to safeguard our environment.

Each component of this candle holder narrates a tale of reclamation. Sourced from scrapyards, rediscovered on city streets, or salvaged from soon-to-be-demolished structures, these materials find a renewed purpose. This metamorphosis of forgotten elements into elegant designs not only represents a joyous creative endeavour but also underscores the potential for envisioning a future where harmony with nature is paramount.

About Gábor Góbi Visit Showroom →

For Gabor, creation is a journey of discovery. He is dedicated to designing in harmony with the environment, always allowing the present moment and inherent potential of an object to guide him. This philosophy is echoed in gobi.design, where the mission is to seamlessly blend eco-consciousness with a passion for design. Gabor envisions a world where everyone equally benefits from a pristine environment, fostering sustainable lifestyles. He perceives this mission as both a privilege and a profound responsibility — the very catalyst for meaningful change. Items crafted under gobi.design participate in nature's eternal cycle. Drawing inspiration from upcycling, hygge, wabi-sabi, slow living, degrowth, and related movements, these creations persist, constantly reshaped by both gentle and formidable forces. Gabor leans heavily on natural materials, often employing traditional methods like Yakisugi, the Japanese art of preserving wood by charring. His range spans furniture to accessories and sculptures, but all pieces share a singular origin: they are reclaimed from waste.
