Designed by Werner Stoff & Hans Nagel

The Nagel family business came from humble circumstances. After the devastation of WW2, the German family would collect empty American cartridge cases and turn them into ashtrays and vases. By the 1960s, Hans Nagel was in charge of the small family business. He was lucky enough to attend Cologne Art School and through this connection met the architect and artist Werner Stoff.

Nagel had long been interested in making beautiful things for the dinner table, while Stoff had been working as a performing artist and had developed his own signature line of rounded objects “without corners.” A shared loved for good design and passion for art sparked a creative match that ultimately lead to the creation of the iconic modular candlestick with worldwide acclaim soon to follow.
