STOFF / Nagel stager - the true story! The Nagel candle holder was originally designed by Werner STOFF for Hans Nagel in the 60's. Since the original production at Nagel stopped, the modular candle stick has become a collectors item. When we got the permission from Nagel to reproduce the candle holder we chose to call it STOFF® as it was Werner STOFF who was the designer behind it. So STOFF® is the new Nagel!
