Amsterdam-based studio BinDesign's 'Rising Balance' candelabra is a dynamic and interesting way to display candles. The unconventional design is based on scales: on one end is the tea light candle and on the other end is a basalt stone. As the candle burns away and becomes lighter, the Rising Balance candle holder begins to shift, similar to a see-saw, as the candle begins to rise while the stone descends.

According to the BinDesign, the concept for the candelabra was inspired by the elements: the brass and stone candle holder displays the equilibrium between earth and fire. It would definitely be an interesting addition to home and offices spaces. The unique function and minimalist aesthetic of the Rising Balance affirms that simplistic yet abstract styles still dominate in the interior design industry.
