Flatlight Candle Holder: Is It 2D or 3D?
October 7th, 2013
Looking for a way to dress up your dining table, but don’t want to go with an ordinary candleholder? These unique candleholders are definitely conversation starters, since you’ll have a hard time figuring out if they’re 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional.
Flatlights look like the 3D wireframe perspective of a candle when viewed from above, but lay completely flat on your table.
Each Flatlight is made from a 0.4mm thick sheet of brass, which is photochemically etched to create the openings. This creates a more durable object than one created on a 3D printer, and also reduces sharp edges compared to laser cutting.
Early buyers can get a single Flatlight for £12(~$19 USD) each or £21(~$32 USD) for a pair. For a few dollars more, they’re also available with black on one side and white on the other, or in a 24K gold-plated finish which looks pretty spiffy.
If you’re interested in getting some Flatlights for your table, head on over to Kickstarter and make your pledge before November 9th.
