Fly Candle Fly by Ingo Maurer is a pendant light with a special candle. The reduced design emphasizes the candle and its soft light. Fly Candle Fly acts especially impressive in a group.
Georg Baldele and his team designed Fly Candle Fly. The lamp consists of a special wax-candle with a suspension rope and a drip catcher.
The candle consists of 95% Paraffin. The burning time takes approx. 15 – 20 hours. The duration depends on the surrounding temperatures. The candle has a fire-stop for safety reasons, approx. 4 -5 cm before the candle burns down.
Fly Candle Fly is a construction with a burning candle, what means that the following hints are to consider: the wick has to be shortened regularly. This prolongs the burning time and avoids smoke emission. High regard to the drip catcher, it must always be in a horizontal position. If necessary, remove the wax when the candle extinguishes.
Even by proper handling it is also possible that the wax (e.g. by draft) falls from the candle or the drip catcher. Never leave the candle burning unattended. Furthermore the candle should be mounted out of children and pets reach.
