If Salvador Dali took a guest designer post at Jonathan Adler, the Distortion Candlestick would be his first pitch. The objet d’art is actually the brainchild of designer Paul Loebach. According to Areaware’s site, “A traditional candlestick is distorted through a 3D rendering program, rapid prototyped, then cast.” The process makes for some seriously trippy footage and the gorgeous resin and marble piece. The Distortion Candlestick ($24) can be purchased in white, gray, black, slate green, clay, gold, silver, blue, or red. I’m picturing a dinner party table setting dotted with these candlesticks, Fornasetti plates, a bright table cloth, and loads of black cats. Guests should provide their own mustaches.
