Alterlyset’s natural candles have become a modern design classic since the 1950s when they were first introduced to the market.
With a penchant for industrial design, Jens Andreas Dahl Hansen created a sculptural and timeless candle that did not require a candlestick or candelabra. Instead, the candle was meant to be placed directly on a table or the floor. The innovative shape of the candle has remained the same and has become an iconic Danish design classic.
This version, in brown with a slight marbling effect, is called ‘Hyggelyset’ and is handmade in Denmark from 100% RSPO-certified vegetable stearin. The natural cotton wick ensures an even burn that is gentle on the environment and hypoallergenic.
