Normann Copenhagen is a Danish design company and brand created by Jan Andersen and Poul Madsen in 1999 with the mission to create original, bold and eye-catching products in a simple and contemporary design that withstands the test of time. Or in other words, to challenge conventional thinking and make the ordinary extraordinary through great and innovative design.
According to Nordic mythology Heima means ‘home’ or ‘the world’, but Heima is also the name of a series of cast iron candle holders. The Nordic tradition of using candlelight is the essence behind Heima, which won the prestigious design prize IF Product Design Award 2010. Heima candle holders are available as tea light candle holder, block candle holder, candlestick and 4-armed candlestick. Inspired by the Nordic culture of using candlelight and the cast iron arts and crafts of the 1950s, Francis Cayouette has created candle holders that feature a recognizable design and pay tribute to industrial craftsmanship and to the Nordic traditions. The uneven, almost cold surface gives the Heima candle holders character, while the rounded shapes make the design modern. Francis Cayouette says: “The concept of ‘coziness’ varies from person to person. For me the Nordic tradition of using candlelight is synonymous with coziness. Arts and crafts must have a recognizability and a history and cast iron is an exciting raw material with history. It was natural that the Heima series holds different candle holders for different types of candles.”
