GALLERIA CANDLEHOLDERS BY AMBROISE MAGGIAR X CRILOI
GALLERIA consists of two candleholders made of white Carrara marble and green Guatemala marble. The GALLERIA set can hold between one and three candles, depending on the size, and is entirely sculpted by hand by marble craftsmen from the historic quarries of Tuscany.
GALLERIA marks the first collaboration between Ambroise Maggiar and CRILOI. GALLERIA is also the name given to covered and pedestrian spaces featured by monumental architecture, whose Italian origins symbolize the passage, like the impressive Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II overlooking Piazza del Duomo. Deeply influenced by the Italian design History and its architecture, designer Ambroise Maggiar has created a set of two candelholders with sculptural lines, referring to the architectural heritage of Milan city.
GALLERIA consists of two candleholders made of white Carrara marble and green Guatemala marble. The GALLERIA set can hold between one and three candles, depending on the size, and is entirely sculpted by hand by marble craftsmen from the historic quarries of Tuscany. Both decorative and functional, the contemporary arches designed by Ambroise Maggiar play with volumes and contrasts, alternating green and white marble color blocks in a checkerboard fashion. Solo or in duo, these two elements respond to each other and can be assembled to become a true architectural centerpiece, recreating the essence of the great Milanese monuments. The beveled edges give pieces a streamlined allure, created to prevent wax from spilling over the facets.
