Lito / Candlestick


Birthdays come and go with memories, but there remains nothing in common between different birthdays in a family. LITO is a birthday cake candlestick which is the memento who holds up the light in our happy moments.
Candles love to ruin the cake’s decoration but LITO will stand in a position which doesn’t do any harm to the cake’s view.
It also can handle different arrangements of candles and differently shaped ones.
No need to clean the cake before eating it, as this candlestick will take care of the melting droplets.
LITO will hold the candle with a needle on its plate and has a blade to be pushed into the cake to keep LITO's balance.
