Kandil is a modern day interpretation of the humble kerosene lamp which aims to capture the essence and spirit of the original kerosene lamp which is seldom seen today. Reminiscent of the original, one has to charge the lamp by pumping…periodical pumping is then needed to maintain light which is now powered by a cleaner and more sustainable power source. Primarily made from wood, Kandil reflects a craft-like approach encompassing a certain texture, richness and heritage, suggesting a link between who we are and what we have. For the old it should bring back memories and perhaps for the young it will be a new experience to be remembered.
