Afelio – candles holder – designed
by lucio curcio for Equilibri furniture.
Afelio, from the astronomic-dictionary, “ The point in an object's orbit around the Sun when it is furthest from the Sun.“. This is the inspiration behind Afelio, a candles holder created by the designer and architect Lucio Curcio. Afelio is a sort of poetic tale that combines the archaic pottery´s work with the modernity and accuracy of the metal working. This candles holder is the manifestation of the Equilibry´s search between handcraft and industry made in Italy.
The cone is made of ceramics made by a local artisan. The metal parts are made by laser which putted toghether create Afelio.
