Bergen is a candle tray part of the family called Silhouette. Inspired in the light shades that Sun creates when hiding behind the mountains after the sunset. In this moment light generates a magical collection of color shades and dimes the mountains in the distance that get lost in the fog. This candle tray take is alias from the beautiful city with the same name, Bergen (Norway). A marvellous city located between mountains (de syv fjell ). The term “Bergen” means Mountains in Swedish.

The tray is made in Ash and shades in powder-coated steel. The base works as playground for your candles, where usually candleholders bind the candle to one position, in a static way, with Bergen you leave the candles freely on the tray and play with the shades to create different kinds of reflections and shadows. The metal shades gives a three-dimensional effect and can direct light to the room or against the wall, every time with a different composition. Shades in front of the candle with become dark and behind will reflect light shaping a beautiful contrast between them. Direct the light against a wall and you will see dancing shadows on the surface while enjoying a awesome soiree.

Bergen is just beautiful, simple and iconic with delicious colours for your favourite shelves and cabinets. Magical evenings with enhancing ambient light that brings the mountains to your home.
