Molekyl tealight 1 chrome
Consisting of a metal pipe, magnetic sphere and numerous steel balls, Molekyl is a unique tealightholder that plays with materials, magnets, shapes and individuality all at the same time. The final design of Molekyl is unfinished, with the ultimate shape decided by you.
Product name: Molekyl
Product category: Tealightholder
Designer: Michael Rem, 2020
Dimensions: Cylinder: Ø: 4.3 cm, H: 3 cm
Steel balls: Ø: 1.5 cm, Ø: 0.6 cm
Use the tealightholder as a centerpiece on the table or on the windowsill. Combine multiple tealightholders to create a traditional Christmas or seasonal display. Or take a more bold approach by placing the candle pipe on top of the balls like it is floating over a cluster of molecules. Place some of the steel balls under a thin table to play with perceptions of space and gravity. Alternatively, create your design using just the large or small balls together.
Molekyl is available in chrome for a classic expression, black for a rawer feel and brass to create a more exclusive look.
Instruction: Use the large balls to build a base, then decorate with the small balls. If you wish to build larger setups, you will as minimum need 2 pcs of tealight. Then you can for example use all the balls on one candleholder.
Preheat an oven to 60°. Put baking paper on two baking sheets. Separate all the balls from each other and the cylinder. Spread the cylinder and balls on the baking sheets. Be aware that the balls remain separate. Heat the parts for 10-15 minutes. Then clean the parts with a slightly damp cloth or paper.
Note: Be sure to turn off the light before it reaches the cylinder, as it may become very hot and may leave marks. Do not use abrasive surfaces to clean Molecular with. Never leave a light on unattended.
