Little Joseph

Little Joseph



€ 87 - € 127

Designed by Maxim Velčovský this humorous candle holder is a truly eye-catching home decor item. Little Joseph resembles a severed doll's head, but he is not as scary as he looks, once you actually get to melt a candle on it - thus growing hair on its head. You have the option of having Little Joseph to remain bald, or depending on the type of candle you use, you can give him a nice hairdo, creating a new and distinct design. Pick any color of wax candle you want and give Little Josef some style. Hand-painted and made of fine porcelain, this piece is a quirky addition to any household! Mr. Velčovský may have created Little Josef, but in the end, you are the designer of it, too.
Weight 0.25 kg
Dimensions 8.5 × 11.5 cm


  • Gold / silver gilded or plain porcelain

Design with a punchline

Qubus Design Studio was started in 2002 by (now infamous duo) Jakub Berdych and Maxim Velčovský. Their ironic pieces, which often criticized consumerism and made fun of pop-culture, had become a synonym for the young Czech design and a staple of shops and galleries all around the world.  

If you struggle to remember seeing some of their work, let us remind you of a porcelain version of the cheap paper sausage trays, porcelain Wellingtons, cups that look like the bottom of a PET Coke bottle or a bowl in the shape of the Czech Republic. Familiar, right? 

In 2011, Maxim Velčovský left to work on other projects, but the Qubus brand remained one of the market’s leaders. Currently, the studio focuses mainly on interior design and architectural projects, as well as on representing Czech design abroad.
