Why is it Special?

Hay’s Moment candleholder extinguishes the candle automatically when it has burned to a certain length: as the needle inserted in the wax releases, its weight swings a small cap above the wick putting out the flame.

Designer Lars Beller Fjetland was inspired by a peculiar candle extinguisher he saw among late 1800’s candlesticks in a museum in Oslo and decided to create a modern interpretation of the concept. The cast iron Moment candleholder is an intriguing object that will stand, unlike the flame, the test of time.
