Fritz Hansen Louise Candleholder
The Louise candleholders are small but significant – much like Grethe Meyer’s many other designs. The Danish architect and designer named the candleholders after Louisiana, the museum of modern art located north of Copenhagen, Denmark. Originally the candleholders were made in aluminium, but for this relaunch they come in mirror polished solid stainless steel with a silver-plated surface.
The robustness of the material adds both personality and exclusivity to the Louise candleholders and the mirror polishing creates a beautiful surface that will patinate with use. Over time the very even and somewhat cool looking surface will turn warmer and obtain that distinct almost noble look of old silver. The Louise candleholders can be polished back to being shiny again at any time. The candleholders can be stacked or styled individually – and they fit both regular candles and tealight candles. The Louise series is geometrically round and cylindric when you stack it. It is pure design with a high functionality.
The Louise candleholders come in packages of one and three.

- Size Description
Grethe Meyer (1918-2008) was educated from the Royal Danish Academy Architecture in 1947 and have since made a strong mark on Danish design history. Amongst other things Meyer contributed to "The building book", which for years was the foundation for teachings at the Academy of Architecture. Meyer had her own practice from 1960, before this she worked at the institute for building research from 1955-60. It was the kitchen though and everyday life around the table that became central in Grethe Meyers work. Besides the COPENHAGEN cutlery Meyer has also designed several dining sets for The Royal Porcelain Factory (now Royal Copenhagen) e.g. the very popular “Blå Kant”. Meyer's works are characterized by simple and strict expressions that give them a timeless touch. Several of Meyer's works are exhibited in design museums around the world and she has won several awards.
