The Bolla Candle Holder was created by Lucidi Pevere for the Driade brand.
Graduates of the Politecnico di Milano, Italian designers Paolo Lucidi and Luca Pevere joined forces in 2003 and have since created many unique pieces for a host of top European and American brands in the fields of lighting, tableware, furniture and bathroom fittings.
This attractive candle holder is formed using hand-blown Murano glass, which can only be created on the island of Murano, located close to Venice in the north of Italy. Using only specific traditional techniques and crafted by master-glassmakers, the Bolla Candle Holder adds subtle colour to candlelight without dimming its brightness. The candle's natural light is actually enhanced by the Murano glass "bolla", or bubble, which protects and encircles the flame and distributes its radiance evenly. The candle holder comprises the cylindrical base and the upper bubble with the two pieces having a combined height of 13cm and the bolla a diameter of 12.5cm. The two parts are easily separated for inserting, removing or lighting the candle but combine solidly to withstand accidental knocks, making the Bolla Candle Holder both elegant and practical.
