Tinge of infinity
Made of solid copper, brass and stainless steel, Trepas, designed by Peter Karpf in 1966, is a system of tea light holders. Searching for the perfect vessel for this simple and universal candle, Karpf created a system of holders that can be positioned in countless ways. As the living flame within reflects off of the polished metals a“tinge of infinity”is created as its reflections bounce between holders.
Through his carrier, Peter Karpf has been known for his work with furniture bent from one single piece of wood, giving them a unique sculptural appearance. His work is also characterized by its simplicity and personal expression. Karpf, functionality is as important as the design of the product, creating a marriage of beauty and use.
