    A five-armed candlestick in lacquered wood with candle holder in brass. The candlestick brings to mind Japanese lacquerware, but also to art podiums and victory stands. A candlestick for five candles where the different plateaus create a flowing rhythm and provide light in different levels with a natural variation in height. “Tribun” is a podium that lifts and enhances the experience of candles.

  • Care instructions

    Unpolished brass will become darker over time from exposure to air. This change can be beautiful. If the surface is affected by water, grease such as fingerprints and candle wax, or by other corroding substances, it can eventually be damaged and more difficult to polish away. This can happen especially in a humid environment.

    Clean the surface with a soft cloth. For a deeper cleaning we recommend a gentle, non-abrasive brass polish. Avoid using brushes, steel wool, polishing cloths, sponges and the like since the surface of brass is sensitive to objects that can scratch. Also avoid lengthy contact with oxides that can cause permanent damage. To avoid water damage, keep surfaces dry with a soft cloth.

    Never leave candles unattended and make sure to blow them out before they reach the candle holder. Keep in mind that some surfaces may be extra sensitive to heat. Take extra caution if you are unsure of the qualities of the table top.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing


    Brass & Wood

    Brass comprises 65% copper and 35% zinc. It has long been called “poor man’s gold”. A large part of Svenskt Tenn’s brass products are manufactured at Humstorp Metall in Västergötland, largely from recycled brass. At Humstorp, they are constantly working on choosing the most environmentally friendly alternatives when purchasing. Waste is minimised throughout the manufacturing process and any waste metal that nevertheless occurs is sent to recycling. Furthermore, an independent solar power facility provides approximately 40% of the workshop’s electricity consumption.
