Accessories: Camouflage Me Candlesticks by Tove Thambert

Christine Chang Hanway September 19, 2011

Seen and admired last week at the "Hemma: Swedish Design Goes London" exhibition at the Swedish ambassador's residence (a gracious 18th-century Robert and James Adam-designed house in Marylebone): hefty cast-iron candlesticks from Swedish designer Tove Thambert's Camouflage Me collection. Thambert describes her collection as "objects in disguise." What appears at first to be a couple of candlesticks is, in fact, a set of dumbbells, manufactured in a small foundry in Sweden using traditional methods. For ordering information, contact Tove Thambert directly.
