Just as our Candle No.1, our new outdoor candle is also expertly handmade exclusively for FOUND. by Markus by a small manufacturer based in the Swabian Alb. It has a hight of 20 cm, a diameter of 15 cm and consists of 100% paraffin wax. The chunky wick holds up to a soft breeze. A glass cover is not necessary - unless the candle is supposed to be used on Sylt island. To extinguish the candle, please pour some liquid wax from the candle over the wick with a spoon. The candle has a burning life of many days. It is not suitable for indoor use.
Hardly anyone has given it a more sensual and memorable appearance as Gerhard Richter did.
That is exactly what we tried to achieve with our version. Handmade in Germany -
the first in-house design by FOUND. by Markus:
Our candle No 1.
We wanted it to be made of beeswax - but not have the destinctive beeswax colour.
It was supposed to smell good without being perfumed.
It was supposed to be solid-coloured without being colourful.
It was supposed to be traditional without being conventional.
It was supposed to be hand-dipped. Precious and simple.
In collaboration with a small candle manufacturer in the Swabian Alb we developed our first in-house product. The wick is being dipped into the hot wax up to 18 times until the candle reaches a diameter of approximately 22 millimeters.
A little paraffin is being added to the beeswax so that the candle burns as nicely as we expect it to.
It will be available in a cream white, a light honey colour, a subtle grey and a deep black.
It burns with pride.
