Founded in 1985 by Emiel Vaessen and Gert Jan Vogel, the design agency Duo Design produced a unique line of interior products over the years. They introduced Flicker in 2008.
Flicker is a straw-like oil lamp sold in a set of 3 sticks. You deposit the stick inside a normal glass or ceramic vase. Jean of NOTCOT saw them at the Maison et Objet Fall 2008 show in Paris. Jean described them as metal straws with a wick inside which soaks up the oil.
Instead of the traditional candlestick, be creative with the way you lit your table when you entertain. You could use a brushed metal or a ceramic rectangular flower box that you fill with sand. Insert deeply the Flicker tubes so they feel securely in place. Cover the sand with black or white sesame seeds to finish it up.
I found a US online retailer that is temporary out of stock. Let’s hope they will be getting more Flicker sets pretty soon.
