Designers Laura Klinkenberg and Bin Xu are engaged with developing the label Laura Bin. The Rising Balance candleholder is Laura Bin’s first entry towards accessible products, considerable time and effort is spent on the design process.
The Rising Balance candleholder inspires the dynamic between two great elements: earth and fire. While your tea light burns and becomes lighter, the circular stone follows the movement downwards. While in transition, the two elements remain in constant equilibrium.
The Rising Balance candleholder consists of three brass components, which were cut into shape by water, before being carefully sanded, polished and folded by hand. The circular stone is made of basalt, a volcanic rock, and counterbalances any tea light with a maximum diameter of 39 mm.
Currently Laura Bin is involved with the sale of the candleholder and is waiting for suitable circumstances to launch its next two designs.
