In three colours and two sizes, Kapp is a series of sculptural candleholders made from slipcast stoneware. Inspired by the history of Noidoi’s studio location– opposite a milk factory dating back to 1800 – the Kapp collection pays tribute to the tools and machinery of the factory it’s from, whereas the three colours represent different elements of milk production – the red of the brick structure, the black of the iron oven and the white of the finished product.
Noidoi was founded in 2013 by Kathrine Lønstad and Cosmin Cioroiu, who met while studying at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Inspired by the differing cultural and professional backgrounds of its founders (Lønstad is Norwegian and orientated towards craft; Cioroiu is Romanian and rooted in industrial design), Noidoi works across a broad spectrum of product design, placing an emphasis on usability, materiality and craftsmanship. One of the studio’s core aims is to increase the longevity of objects by inspiring a sense of personal attachment in the user. In 2014, Noidoi’s rehabilitation mat WalkON was awarded first prize by the Norwegian Design Council in the Young Talent category. Today, they collaborate with international firms, creating products for the likes of Skagerak, Menu and Northern.
