Diptyque Debuts ‘Simple Objects’ Collection Inspired By Iconic Candles

Diptyque debuts its ‘Simple Objects’ collection in Paris recently. Curated by French designer Sam Baron, the new household items were inspired by the French Maison’s luxury candle. The theme for the collection was the simplicity of form and plays with Diptyque’s icons seen through modern eyes in a combination of materials, shapes, and concepts.

Each of the collection pieces was designed by global designers, artists, and craftsmen selected by Diptyque to reinterpret the iconic candle: Jean-Marc Gady, Samuel Accoceberry, Toma Blok, Cécile Bichon, Nicolas Mareau, Gianpaolo Pagnim, and Sam Baron, himself.

The Diptyque ‘Simple Objects’ collection features a set of four white porcelain love boxes bearing a letter inspired by the calligraphy work of Desmond Knox-Leet, one of Diptyque’s three founders. It also includes fine white wax vases by Jean-Marc Gady and Samuel Accoceberry inspired by Médici vases and antique objects, ceramic soap dishes by ceramicist Toma Blok, a trio of circular dishes by artisan woodturner Nicolas Mareau, wood-turned candle holders by Mareau and Baron, and a melted wax drip-effect ceramic vase designed by Cécile Bichon and made by porcelain manufacturer Maison Bernardaud.

The entire collection is currently available from diptyqueparis.com with prices ranging from $102 for the Small Baluster Candle Holder to $249 for the White Lost Wax Candle Holder.
