Floris Hovers together with Vij5

“The Fixum candle holder is created by designer and close friend Floris Hovers, with whom we have been happy to collaborate already for years now. We are excited to add this sympathetic smaller item to the collection, where the other items in the Vij5 collection designed by Floris are mainly furniture. This remarkable candle holder in our opinion is a typical Floris Hovers design. When you love his style, you will love the Fixum!”

– Arjan & Anieke


Fixum is a remarkable candle holder, adaptable to different thicknesses of candles. Designed by Floris Hovers, the candle holder is a product that explains itself well in visual language and structure. The simple but sublimely balanced construction ensures that any random candle stands firm and completes the composition.

Anyone who recognises Floris Hovers’ handwriting will notice that the design of the candle holder indirectly derives from his free work, focusing on making unique assemblies and compositions. With the candle holder this is expressed in the combination of different materials: coloured steel parts are combined with a small pear wood cube and a brass butterfly screw. Floris’ distinctive use of colours is reflected in a series of three colours in which the Fixum is available. The name ‘Fixum’ is Latin for ‘fixed’.

These candles are made from pure rapeseed wax and have therefore naturally a beautiful soft white-porcelain colour and are the perfect gift-combination with the Fixum candleholders. Rapeseed wax is hardened vegetable oil and is produced in Europe and even rebuilt in the Netherlands. A local product and a sustainable alternative to paraffin candles. Rapeseed is often grown on wasteland, without pesticides. Especially as a soil improver rapeseed crops enriched the soil structure in alternating crops humus formation, after which next harvests a better one have a profit. In addition, rapeseed is beneficial for biodiversity because this rich flowering plant also serves as food for bees and other insects. For the renovation of the rapeseed plants do not have to give way to people and animals, no jungles are burned for it and none are burned fossil raw materials used. These rapeseed wax candles: are handmade in the Netherlands, are fully biodegradable, have a small ecological footprint, are 100% vegetable, burn longer than regular candles and contain no genetically modified or toxic substances.
