“Fixum is a remarkable candle holder, adaptable to different thicknesses of candles. Designed by Floris Hovers, the candle holder is a product that explains itself well in visual language and structure. The simple but sublimely balanced construction ensures that any random candle stands firm and completes the composition.
Anyone who recognises Floris Hovers’ handwriting will notice that the design of the candle holder indirectly derives from his free work, focusing on making unique assemblies and compositions. With the candle holder this is expressed in the combination of different materials: coloured steel parts are combined with a small pear wood cube and a brass butterfly screw. Floris’ distinctive use of colours is reflected in a series of three colours in which the Fixum is available. The name ‘Fixum’ is Latin for ‘fixed’.”
