Gonçalo Campos and Maria Bruno Néo have recently collaborated on this collection of porcelain candle holders.
Produced using a rather unusual technique, their name 'Pano' - which means 'cloth' in Portuguese word - gives a clue as to how they're made.
By using cotton fabric as the temporary structure to hold the porcelain form in shape, the designers then burnt the fabric away, leaving only the delicate porcelain behind.
As Campos says:
"Not using the typical mould creates the great opportunity to make individual pieces in a very efficient way, but still keeping their uniqueness. It's also very special the dynamic brought by the texture and appearance of the fabric that in turn shapes the porcelain."
Rather special and each piece is unique thanks to its process of manufacture.
