Marimekko's Plunta candleholder is made of mouth-blown glass. The contemporary candlestick is easily recognisable as a creation by the Swedish designer Carina Seth Andersson, and its design language perfectly combines modern minimalist aesthetics with beloved Nordic traditions. Thanks to the detachable metal candleholder cup, it can also be used as a small vase.

Carina Seth Andersson (born in 1965) is a Swedish designer known for her glass and ceramic works that own a unique balance of timeless form and function. The work of Carina Seth Andersson carries a deceptively minimalist feel, concealing a range of highly considered details in which lie the extraordinary functionality of the products.

In 1994, Seth Andersson was selected to represent Sweden in the Milan Triennial, and in 1998 she designed glass artefacts for the Quite Simply series in conjunction with the European Capital of Culture project. Carina Seth Andersson has collaborated with many well-known Scandinavian and international design brands and has left a lasting imprint on Finnish design as well: in 2016, Marimekko launched a series of glass vases and textiles, designed by Seth Andersson, that draw inspiration from the brand’s most classic prints. The collection grew with added versions and seasonal colours and became vastly popular.
