Dror, a multisciplinary design studio started by Dror Benshetrit, collaborated with fragrance design studio Joya to create a unique, hand-crafted light diffusing candle especially for RARE. Based in New York and having received his education at the Eindhoven Design Academy in Holland, Dror observes the world from an inquisitive eye and seeks unique responses to the needs of our modern lifestyle. In collaboration with a team of experts, Benshetrit conducts research on materials, technology and geometry.
"Oblique" by Dror contains what cannot be held and directs what cannot be controlled, embodying a paradox: vessel for light or container for wax? Thin porcelain encases a flame that permeates through its walls and affirms the crease that it helped create. The sharp angled base and sides contrast with the softness of the light, providing a new oblique perspective on what it means to be candle and holder.
