Snug by Sanna Völker

Updated: Dec 6, 2019

Snug candle holders 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.

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. Because the story behind the design is as important, and must be just as beautiful, as the finished piece.
