In the world of home decor, where innovation meets tradition, the Chouchin emerges as a captivating blend of both. This unique, pillar-shaped candle, inspired by the serene aesthetics of a traditional Japanese ‘chouchin’ lantern, represents a harmonious fusion of design and function.
Crafted with a dual wax composition, the Chouchin features an interior made of standard wax, burning in the familiar, comforting manner of a typical candle. However, it’s the exterior that sets it apart. This outer layer is composed of a patented, non-melting wax, creating a translucent shell that beautifully diffuses light, mimicking the soft, ambient glow of a lantern. As the candle burns, the light permeates through this outer wax, transforming the candle into a source of gentle, warm illumination.
This innovative design was brought to life through a collaboration with the esteemed Pegasus Candle Co. Ltd, based in Kurashiki, Japan. The non-melting wax not only adds to the candle’s aesthetic appeal but also serves a practical purpose. It collects the melting wax within, eliminating the need for a tray and allowing the candle to be safely held without the risk of dripping wax.
The Chouchin isn’t just a marvel in wax innovation; it’s also a testament to longevity and sustainability. The inner candle boasts an impressive burn time of 60 hours, ensuring months of ambient lighting with daily use. Furthermore, its design accommodates replaceable refills, enhancing its life span and reducing waste.
Each candle is meticulously crafted at the Pegasus Candle Co.’s factory, ensuring the highest quality…
