Candle Light for the Modern Era
Lighting studio Graypants, based in Seattle and Amsterdam, has released Wick: a chic portable fixture leveraging the warmth and collective joy of candlelight in an energy-efficient and modern form. Liberating beautiful lighting from a cord, plug, and flame, Wick imagines good design that can come with us everywhere – from bedside table to garden, from kitchen to campsite, as a portable, mood-setting companion.
Wick is designed with the time-honored belief that light is meant to be shared: light is the tool that connects and humanizes the ordinary and extraordinary moments of our lives. Lasting up to a hundred hours per charge, Wick is a call from our past toward our future, combining the romance of a candle with the utility of a flashlight. Three lighting levels enable it to be used both as a bright reading light, and as a sophisticated means to create an intimate atmosphere. With a maximum brightness stronger than a traditional candle Wick can be used both indoors and outdoors, by children and adults alike.
