Designed by Broberg & Ridderstråle
Pythagoras is a candelabra that with one continuous line draws out several triangles that together make up interesting shapes from every angle. As the name suggests the design duo Broberg & Ridderstråle was inspired by the Greek mathematician’s famous theorem. The candelabra plays with lines and negative space creating intriguing silhouettes and volumes. When the three candles are lit the shadows expand the geometric composition into a larger spectrum. Pythagoras has been a part of a collection from Tingest, Alexander Lervik’s brand and home for a plethora of Swedish designers, that we at Design House Stockholm took over to further develop and produce. This is the first product to see the market under its new brand name.
