THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
The challenge was to create a candle holder that could hold a large variety of candles. What came to me was to copy the technology of a chuck … a tool designed with the sole purpose of holding rods of variable diameters. However, in order to express the function more clearly, I copied the more well know design of a camera shutter. So, the Pupill can be seen as the amalgam of two old and well know technologies applied in a new product category.
