6sqft Gift Guide: Andrej Urem’s Architecturally Inspired Eco-Candles

December 8, 2014

Candles are probably the easiest, most common holiday gift when you just don’t have a clue what to get someone. But after several years of giving the same old candle, it gets a little boring. So we’ve found the perfect outside-the-box candle for architecture buffs, tech nerds, or anyone who will love an attractive eco-candle.

The AU Collection by artist and designer Andrej Urem is a series of 3D-printed candles inspired by architectural forms. And they’re made right here in Brooklyn.

Urem considers the 4-inch x 4-inch x 3.4-inch candles “livable art pieces” and notes that they set new standards in the way they burn and their unique style and shape. They’re made from USA-grown soy wax and beeswax, have lead-free cotton wicks, and can burn for over 60 hours. Urem engineered the production molds himself and uses 3D technology, computer simulation and traditional methods of casting to arrive at the final product.
