Duo Design’s Flicker- 09.06.08

flicker1a.jpgOne of the first things that grabbed me wandering the vast halls of Maison et Objet Fall 2008 ~ Duo Design Holland’s Flicker oil lamp sticks, they are exquisite. So simple, so elegant, and such a perfect gift! The sticks can come alone in a minimal flat packed envelope of sorts (imagine like tall thin birthday candles), or they are available in a gift set. Essentially the design is much like a metal straw with a wick inside which soaks up the oil ~ but the effect is truly gorgeous, and would look so lovely on any desk/table setting! See more images on the next page…

Merci beaucoup, Veuve Clicquot ~ who loves design as much as we do, and brought me to Paris to cover Maison et Objet 2008! More design discoveries to come…

Clicked the link above for Questo Designs. Very reasonably priced at $22USD. but shipping is another 20! for such a small item! :-( still worth it tho.

Just visited friends in Holland who had these and now stuck because i thought I would be able to find them here in Sydney somewhere… No website or shop to be found:-( Any suggestions?

I bought some of these flicker lamps when in Holland.
I have followed the instructions, used lamp oil but the flames go out after a few minutes. Any suggestions how to get them to stay lit.

Do you know of any retailer in the U.S. that carries the DuoDesign Flicker Oil Lamp Sticks. I have friends that found them years ago and have not seen them since. Thank you.

simply stunning!!! i hope these go into production soon, i can already see them scattered around my home. i love that the tops get a beautiful bronz-y patina after use, its a nice juxtaposition to their sleek brushed silver body

Great and simple!
I suppose when you turn it off, you have to wait til it’s cold or you will hurt the fingers with the hot stick. Isn’t it?

Less is more!
