“If you don't understand what it is, then it's design”
It's just an old joke, yet many have happened to have this thought.
The fact is that "Design" it is such a vast word that it carries with it an incredible array of concepts. And to think that it simply means "project".
Beyond the literal sense, when we talk about design, we mean careful planning, a long term study at the origin of an object which made it possible to make it more functional , more resistant , more nice !
And designers often succeed in creating simple and effective solutions to complex problems.
But is innovation still possible for objects of daily use?
It would seem so if you evaluate the quantity of shelves, trays, chairs and other objects, of the most disparate shapes, that are on the market.
Even if, today, innovation is more aesthetics what a practice.
And what happens to an object that had a real utility in the past and today has been transformed into a purely decorative object, like the candle holder ?
It happens that he is more alive than ever!
DESIGNER CANDLE HOLDERS
Chandeliers And candelabras were useful tools in antiquity, the first portable "lights". Obviously their ability to "illuminate" has also taken on a spiritual value so as to become protagonists of religious ceremonies.
Its "magical" air and comforting presence in the home immediately decreed its function as a object of decoration , thus, craftsmen and artists they tried their hand at creating strange and unique shapes for this object.
Yet the arrival of electricity has drastically reduced its use.
Until, now definitively deprived of any real utility, the candlestick has returned as a purely decorative object and for its ability to recreate a "nice atmosphere".
