Candlelight is one of the most seductive and beautiful light sources there is, lighting the night and giving a warm glow to your surroundings.

The Gravity Candle is a very clever little candle it can be turned and twisted and no matter which way you move it, the light always remains upright.

Encased in glass with a stainless steel base, this clever design allows you to tilt and light the candle without burning yourself or without having to remove the glass. Its versatility means you can use it indoors or outdoors, you can hang it from a tree branch or bracket, you can stand it on its own, so it’s great for the table, the bedroom, the bathroom, the garden, or wherever you want soft light, or you can put it onto a pole which means you can light your garden path or outdoor seating area.

What makes GRAVITY CANDLE unique

GRAVITY CANDLE is a multifunctional lantern with a timeless and elegant design, which is surprisingly easy, clean and safe to light and put out. Use it standing up, hanging or on a pole, and place it wherever you want: on a table, balcony, patio, or in the garden. Turn it upside down to quickly and safely extinguish the candle and protect the inside from leaves, water and dust.


Safely light & extinguish

It doesn’t get any easier or safer: to light with a match, just tilt GRAVITY CANDLE slightly to the side. There’s no need to remove the glass tube or worry about any unsightly drops of wax. To quickly extinguish the candle you only need to turn it upside down: the base then covers the flame, cuts off the supply of oxygen and extinguishes. No need to blow it out, and no splashes of wax or smoke!


Hanging solution with cord

The hanging system (accessory) is suitable for both indoors and outdoors. For flats, houses and cottages, as well as gardens, patios and balconies. Easy to set up, this option also offers all the cool GRAVITY CANDLE features, including safe lighting and extinguishing. In its upside-down position, the inside of the lantern is well protected from the elements and any dust!


Standing lantern with pole

A festive dinner? A social gathering on the patio or in the garden? Place GRAVITY CANDLE wherever you like. On a wall, a platform or raised up with a pole and base. Or simply put the pole in the ground – in the lawn or a plant pot, and enjoy the beautiful candlelight outside! The different lengths only increase the number of possibilities! The pole and base are quick and easy to assemble. No tools required.


Elegant lantern

Solid cast metal in matt silver. An elegant glass cylinder. Simple, clear mechanisms. These are the ingredients which come together to create a timeless aesthetic and special atmospheric effect. As the lantern can also be adapted using accessories, every option captivates in its own way and leaves a lasting impression.


A multifunctional lantern with pure elegance! No matter which way you turn and twist it, the candle always stays upright! This is because the gimbal mount uses gravity to keep it perpendicular. This particular feature makes it super easy to operate from start to finish: tilt the lantern slightly to the side to make it quick and safe to light the upright candle with a match.

To extinguish, just turn GRAVITY CANDLE upside down. The base passes over the flame, cuts off the supply of oxygen and extinguishes the flame quickly and without fuss. Practical: in the upside-down position, the inside of the lantern is protected from dirt, rain and dust. It’s not just on a table that GRAVITY CANDLE provides a cosy atmosphere. Thanks to convenient accessories, the lantern also shines elegantly in a hanging position, on a pole or as a floor lamp. Where is the ambient candlelight going to look best? Garden, balcony, kitchen, living room? The choice is yours. Tip: to ensure the longest possible burning time for GRAVITY CANDLE, we recommend Gastro Tea Lights
