Max Bruel Hi-Fi brass candestick for Torben Ørskov
This elegant brass candlestick was designed in 1960 by Danish architect Max Bruel, whose other work includes the design of Copenhagen's Herlev hospital, the tallest building in Denmark. It was made to the highest standards of quality by luxury goods company Torben Ørskov, which produced many other top-quality architect-designed objects in the same era including Herbert Krenchel's famous Krenit range. We currently have just a few of these candlesticks remaining available. All carry Torben Ørskov's TØ logo in the brass underneath the base, and a few also have a paper Torben Ørskov label.
The candlestick has a height of 135mm (approx 5 inches), a base diameter of 90mm, and a head diameter of 54mm with a candle recess of 20mm. Despite its narrow profile it is heavy, weighing approximately 540g, which gives it great stability. None of the examples we have in stock have been polished in many years, so they are patinated and the brass appears dull. We leave it up to purchasers to decide whether they prefer them like this or would like to polish them, in which case they do shine up beautifully.
