Plinth was an indirect response to reading Super Normal by Naoto Fukasawa & Jasper Morrison. I felt that the tealight candle fell perfectly into this category of modest, anonymous objects that blend into our lives whilst quietly and expertly performing their intended function.

It struck me that most tealight holders typically conceal the candle itself, but I wanted to design an object that would place it centre stage.

Plinth seeks to elevate and display this unassuming design classic and present it to the viewer as if it were a sculpture displayed in an art gallery.
