Working in collaboration with the Royal Opera House, Ola have produced a range of stationery with the focus on quality craftsmanship. Every item draws upon traditional techniques to produce contemporary yet simple designs referenced by architecture, geometry, theatre, ballet and the opera.
This wonderfully simple card celebrates the history of the theatre, and the importance of candles. Before gas lighting became available candles were widely used, creating a very real risk of fire. Even after modern lighting became available, candles were still often used, including on stage, with some near misses such as Maria Callas practically setting herself alight in Tosca in 1964. A gold foiled print on a blue paper stock surround, this card celebrates a symbol which was at the very heart of the theatre. Complete with cream envelope and packaged in biodegradable cellophane.
