The Lantern candle holder, designed by Harri Koskinen, is a modern design icon in its own right. Made of mouth-blown glass, the candle holder is characterised by a streamlined, symmetrical form that creates the illusion of light floating in the air. Enhanced by the flickering glow of a candle, the sculptural design of Lantern is a beautiful addition to any modern interior. The small Lantern has the same proportions as the larger one, but due to its smaller size is suitable for a tealight.
