Often the candle itself is a structural part of the design of a candle holder. As a candle burns down and is removed from the candle holder, something of the meaning of the product is removed with it. Tema candle tray was designed not to formally communicate its main utilitarian purpose, as a means to always seem complete with or without candle(s). Without it is simply an odd interior sculpture. Tema can hold up to 5 candles.
