The STOFF Nagel candleholder is an icon of German design of the post-war period. Its history begins with the Nagel family, who lived in a small village near Cologne after the Second World War and who made their living with handmade ashtrays, vases and candleholders. Barely 20 years after the war ended, the then 35-year-old Hans Nagel met architect and artist Werner Stoff in the Cologne design community.
Nagel told Stoff he was struck with an idea whilst skiing in the Alps, when a sudden fall forced him to use his wrist to break it, creating three holes in the snow with his fingers. This was the start of their collaboration.
The STOFF Nagel candleholder was successfully brought to market in the late sixties, earning the Nagel family world fame.
After the candleholder had been unavailable for decades, it was once more brought to market using Hans Nagel's and Werner Stoff's original drawings (please view the final photo) by Danish design company Just Right ApS/STOFF Copenhagen ApS.
Condition in line with age and use, such as minor scratches, stains and patina on the chrome. One S300 candleholder has been glued and has multiple scratches, but it functions just fine, please view the final photo series.
Please have a good look at the photos for a clear image of the offered lot.
Will be sent well-packaged and by registered mail via PostNL Parcel service, within the Netherlands and abroad. Also be sure to visit our Catawiki page catawiki.grooveydesign.nl for other vintage design lots.
