The candle-holder was made for the project and exhibition “This is not a joke”. A series of luxurious gimmicks and gadgets.
With the collection “This is not a joke” we show objects that entertain, inspired by traditional gags and jokes.
Things that are made to amuse often represent bad taste and bad quality, however they can sometimes affect you in a compelling and releasing way, and make you laugh instinctively. We explore and add value to the lovely banalities in humorous objects.
