Set of three candleholders, in a Streamline Moderne design, made from brushed and polished stainless steel by artist and designer, Avedis Baghsarian.
“After 30 years as a respected and eminent photographer, Avedis found photography no longer challenging and in the early 1990s decided to go back to his original studies and began designing and producing a collection of tabletop accessories. He focused his energies on creating original yet functional designs emphasizing compositions that featured interlocking forms for practical pieces such as vases, candle holders and salt-and-pepper shakers, among other items. In 1994, the collection won the prestigious International Design Magazine Award. Those objects were introduced in New York’s distinguished stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys and 28 leading museum stores, including New York’s Guggenheim, San Francisco MOMA, Museum of Contemporary Arts in Chicago, the Los Angeles Museum of Arts and San Diego Museum of Arts as well as the International Museum of Jerusalem in Israel and Kobi in Japan.” – excerpted from Avedis Baghsarian’s bio. on his site
