For every issue of S, a celebrity donates a favorite object for the benefit of a good cause. This time around: a candle holder owned by the designer Floris van Bommel.



"My mother gave me this simple tin candle holder because she knows me very well, she knows that when working on a design I often go for layers, for details, I like it when I put one in my designs Twist, even if it is not recognized by everyone, is a bit of a mystery, and the extra layer of the chandelier makes the pewter sparkle, and I think it's great: a symbol of the ever-present opportunity, something exciting to do Regardless of what you do and do in life.
