CHUNK is an iconic candleholder shaped under high pressure.
Hand folding the tinfoil gives every piece its own unique weight and structure. The texture gets its luster by this technique and gives it an extravagant look.
WARD WIJNANT: “CHUNK is created out of pressed tinfoil. This technique allows me, as it were, to mold the material. As a result, interminable possibilities and shapes can arise, which is inspiring to me. In my designs both technique as material lead to the final form.”
WARD’s work is characterized by experimenting with materials. It is his mission to interpret the diversity of techniques and materials and translate them in contemporary designs that pay attention to detail and finish. The element of surprise is essential in his work.
