From the colorful mind of designer Achille Castiglioni comes this vivacious accent inspired by the vibrant futurist pottery of the Giuseppe Mazzotti ceramics factory. Based on sketches unearthed from the designer's archives, this mesmerizing candleholder comes to life when the wick is lit. The heat of a flickering tealight causes the stained-glass cylinder to spin playfully, displaying a panoply of colors in flowing succession. Known for his lighthearted home accents, Castiglioni (1918–2002) was an Italian architect and industrial designer who is renowned as a maestro of twentieth-century design. Made in China.

Renowned Italian industrial designer Achille Castiglioni studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano University. Alongside his brothers, Castiglinoi set up a design office in 1944. Between 1955 and 1989, Castiglioni earned an impressive nine Compasso d'Oro awards. The genius of Castiglioni's inventive imagination is in his ability to use the minimal amount of materials while creating forms with a maximum effect. Many of his designs are in many museums around the world
