Soft Capital is a fine, practical marble candle holder designed by Nick Ross. You can use the narrow end for regular tall candles and turn it around and use the wide end for tea lights.
The design is done with reference to the great, impressive pillars of Ancient Rome. Nick Ross explains, "Soft Capital is inspired by the capitals in ancient Roman temples. A Capital connects the pillar to the ceiling or the arches, which it bears. I wanted to take this basic but beautiful form and give it a new softer look."
When asked where he gets his inspiration, Nick Ross replies, "I am inspired by history and how it affects the way we see things today. Ancient crafts or values in craft give them a magical quality today. I believe we can add this lost magic to contemporary domestic goods as well. By understanding the past we can add more soul to the present."
