Lex Pott has created a new type of candle that mixes design with function and fun.
The liquid state of wax was a starting point in this project. By bending and twisting candles a new typology appears combining form, function and fun.
The twist candles use the flexibility of wax. Candles are usually straight and therefore need a base. In this project, Lex combined both base and the candle in a single material shape. Resulting in one double-ended candle
Rotterdam based designer Lex Pott employs a raw and intuitive method.
He combines Dutch minimalism and preference for natural materials with an arresting sleek aesthetic.
In his work, he returns to the origin of the materials he uses , he does not hide his designs under indirect layers, but reduces them to their very essence.
His wide range of output extends from fine art to functional design and includes furniture, decorative objects, household products, textiles and interior spaces.
He graduated cum laude in 2009 at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
