designed by Alexander Lervik
Inventor and designer Alexander Lervik have for as long as he can remember been affected by light and darkness. His relationship with the light and the lack of it during the long Swedish winters has been a never-ending source of inspiration throughout his career. At first, Alexander had no idea what his candleholder would look like. All he knew was that he wanted the shadow cast by its form to be in the shape of a star. He experimented and eventually created Shadow. Light the candle held by Shadow and a distinct star is formed, as the candle burns its shape will grow bigger and bigger. Since Alexander Lervik designed Shadow for Gallery Pascale in 2004 we’ve had our eyes on it. And that is why we are we happy to further develop and keep this design classic alive in our own collection.

For his design college graduation exhibition back in 1998, Alexander Lervik at the tender age of 26 had unknowingly hit on what was to become his winning concept. With his exhibition 10 stools 10 decades he had combined concept design, unlikely partnerships and innovations in what turned out to be his way in to the industry.
This three-way design approach is defining for Alexander Lervik’s almost 20-year career as one of Sweden’s leading designers, whose quest for innovation speaks louder than the passion for creating beautiful objects.
“I rarely get hung up on the details or art-for-art’s sake. What fires me is the desire to create a product based on a novel concept or invention. I see this as my forte, though some might see it as a failing in a designer”, says Alexander.
