Traditional customs can have a contemporary style too so celebrate Hanukkah with this understated Scandinavian take on a menorah. Rising from a conical base, the candelabra branches out almost organically to hold nine tapered candles. It makes a beautiful centerpiece to a table at this special time of year.
Designed by German-born Constantin Wortmann, Cobra is one of Georg Jensen’s most recognizable collections. The elegant fluidity of the shapes coupled with Wortmann’s unmistakeable sense of humour gives Cobra a timeless appeal that ensures it is recognized as a contemporary classic.
Constantin Wortmann studied industrial design in Hamburg and Munich. In the second year he worked first as an intern then as a freelance designer in the team of lighting maestro Ingo Maurer. In 1998, still being a student he co-founded the design studio Büro für Form together with Benjamin Hopf.
In the coming couple of years Wortmann designed projects for Ycami, VIBIA, Modoluce, Kundalini and Authentics. In 2004 BFF started to collaborate with OSRAM, working on future concepts with new lighting technologies (Planon, LED, Oled) and with Koziol brand.
Undoubtedly one of Georg Jensen’s most recognizable and iconic candleholders, the Cobra’s sensual fluid shape has captured the hearts of many. Seemingly defying gravity, the lightness of the candleholders has a magical effect - one that is doubled when the flickering candlelight is reflected in the surface.
The unusual fluid shape makes an interesting detail on a table or shelf but really comes to life when the candles are lit and the warm light of the flame is reflected back in the mirror-polished surface. The effect is magical.
German-born Constantin Wortmann believes that design should not be too serious but also wants it to have a functionality and intrinsic beauty. He resolves this puzzle masterfully in the Cobra collection for Georg Jensen where practicality, humour and good looks are all in plentiful supply.
