Weight Here Candlesticks Crush the Image of the Delicate Candelabrum

There are some men who feel that candles are incredibly feminine examples of interior decor, but perhaps these Weight Here Candle Holders would change their minds? They certainly maintain a beauty and even an elegance in their clean lines and rationalized forms, but they have a bulk to them that embodies an element of masculinity.

Kibisi's design for Menu of Denmark employs a heavy stone compound as its primary material. Known as Polystone, it is a mixture of resin as a binding agent and powdered rock. The ashen finished product bears a distinctive resemblance to cement or concrete.

This substance has been sculpted into two candelabra and two portable single-taper lumieres. Each of the Weight Here Candleholders comes in a hefty and a more slender model and they're capped by cast iron where the wax is inserted.
