Adding to their modular collection of hand poured concrete holders and pillar candles CONCRETE&WAX introduce the BLACK COLLECTION of luxury fragranced vegan container candles and diffusers – all include an innovative multi-functional detail.
Each product comes in a chunky matt black glass vessel with a stylish hand poured black concrete lid – and here is where CONCRETE&WAX’s intelligent modular design ethos comes into play, because each lid can be used in its own right as a tealight burner, or holder for their pillar candles. The lids can also be used as a base to stack other holders from the CONCRETE&WAX collection on to, allowing customers the possibility to create personalised candleware arrangements.
“We fully appreciate that the concrete will always outlast the wax, so designed a collection that allows the concrete to live a long and useful life.”
The vegan hand poured candles are a blend of rapeseed and coconut wax, delivering burn times of 30-35 hours in the small 180gm container candle (£30) and over 50 hours in the 400gm big brother (£45).
The 100ml fragrance diffusers are hand blended by Mrs Wax and delivered with 5 chunky black fibre reeds (£35).
All items in the BLACK COLLECTION are available in Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Tobacco & Oak, Sandalwood & Black Pepper and Amber Noir. Each is presented with a matching fragranced soy wax tealight in the lid, before being beautifully tissue wrapped and packaged in a signature dripping wax branded tube.
CONCRETE&WAX is a modular, stackable collection of luxury concrete candle holders and fragranced natural wax candles, created to let you design the light in your home.
Established in November 2018 by design-duo Alex Sommer and Laura Keller of 2SOM Studio (a.k.a. Mr Concrete and Mrs Wax), the collection offers flexibility to introduce fragrant light – and style – into any home in many ways. The unique modular design of the holders and candles means they are interchangeable allowing for both complex stacking arrangements or simple low-key displays.
To ensure true craftsmanship all products are hand poured in small batches in their Suffolk workshop and to allow the concrete a long and happy life, each holder is also designed to fit any standard tealight.
