Their extended range of London themed glassed candles is also a true celebration of art and craftsmanship. For this collection, cent.ldn partnered with several female creators from London and together the collective developed a range of six unique candles to represent the diverse neighbourhoods of London and the creative communities within them. Each candle is meticulously hand-poured using 100% natural wax, offering an impressive burn time of 60-65 hours. Talented East London artist Charlotte Archer infuses her vibrant and eye-catching artworks for collectable packaging that can be displayed as an art piece or even used as a bookmark. Drawing inspiration from her favourite musicians across various genres, from hip-hop and jungle to reggae and soul, her passion for music shines through in every flickering flame. Charlotte's abstract paintings reveal a surreal style where the 'beings' she portrays often hold cultural and autobiographical elements.
As NAMES joins forces with cent.ldn, brace yourself for a sensory adventure that seamlessly fuses artistry, culture, innovation and sustainability.
