Fanoos / candlestick

Fanoos
Fanoos

In the dim and distant past, the keeping of light and fire was of high importance in the Iranian Culture. The illumination of lights in houses is the symbol of the respect for fire as one of four creation elements. Clay was used for making lantern. The use of clay in Iran dates back to 7000 years. This material has been used for making all kinds of containers including oil lamps. The form and performance of old lanterns has inspired the design of “Fanoos”. “Fanoos” is a candlestick, which, while being modern from the form and performance view, keeps inside its heart the traces of the Iranian culture.
