Snowball from Kosta Boda is not just any candle holder. This iconic glass votive has illuminated its surroundings since 1973, when it was created through an experiment in which glass was blown directly inside a snowdrift. It has since sold over 15 million copies worldwide.
With a shape and surface as if actually made of snow, Snowball continues to evoke memories of childhood's snow lanterns – while lighting the winter darkness here and now.
"The snowball - the shape of the lantern and crispy surface for the thoughts of childhood winters, where beautifully constructed snow lanterns light up the Swedish winter darkness"
