Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Snug candle holders by Sanna Völker are handmade by stonemasons who have mastered their craft for four generations, dating back to 1880. All pieces are made from natural stone leftovers, some up to 500 million years old, handpicked by the designer herself from a quarry located in a small mountain village in the province of Barcelona. Snug is a project that celebrates local craft, quality material and emotional value.

The essence of the product is the material itself, expressed through minimalist design. Stone is created and shaped by history, through shifting continents, seas and earthquakes. Some tell their story through banded layers, others through fossils. And it is here, in their sheer variation, that Snug finds its beauty.

The two candles are trapped by the material in what becomes a brutalist yet delicate candle holder. Snug is a story of craftsmanship, sustainability and transparency. Because the story behind the design is as important and must be just as beautiful as the finished piece.

Artist Profile

Born: 1985

Hometown: Linköping

Based in: Barcelona

Sanna Völker is a designer of objects and furniture who works in the interface between Scandinavia and Spain. Her work can be described as a search for equilibrium between rawness and refinement, harmony and intrigue. Her designs often draw references to architecture and brutalism, manifested in furniture and objects of pure shapes.
Human intervention in nature and society is a theme that she often explores in detail, paired with the problematic of our over-consumption and environmental issues. Intrigued by craft and how traditional materials or techniques can be transformed into a contemporary piece she collaborates with local craftspeople, both for her self-produced pieces and commissioned works.
