LUCIA CANDLEHOLDERBY ARTEK
In deepest December, Lucia the light-bringer triumphs over darkness. In Finland, thousands of girls dress up as Lucia and take part in a candlelit procession through the streets, proclaiming the victory of hope and love over despair, and remembering that even a small light can drive away the darkness. The Lucia Candleholder also has a smaller companion, Lucius Candleholder, and belongs to a family of six ceramic objects created by COMPANY for Artek’s FIN/JPN Friendship Collection.

Artek was founded in Helsinki in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. Their goal was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.” In keeping with the radical spirit of its founders, Artek today remains an innovative player in the world of modern design, developing new products at the intersection of design, architecture, and art. The Artek collection consists of furniture, lighting, and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers. It stands for clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity.
