Wästberg’s Holocene No.3 is a brass candleholder designed by Jasper Morrison, with an extremely simplistic form. The object follows Morrison’s design philosophy, in which the starting point for designing is the usability of the object. An additional dash of sophistication is brought about by the warm glow of the candlestick’s brass surface.

Wästberg’s Holocene collection is a tribute to fire, mankind’s first source of light. The name of the collection comes from geology: Holocene is the geological era that began after the last ice age when the actions of humans did not yet affect nature. The purpose of the collection is to remind how important an element fire has been to mankind, and that it still offers ways to create atmospheric and pleasant lighting – either instead of or alongside electric lights.
