PIFFANY COPENHAGEN exhibits at Formland at stand no J 7202 and K 8210 In 2013, Piffany Copenhagen Summary produced a line of patented LED block candles in Denmark. The company is now ready to present an expanded collection in multiple colours at this year’s Formland. Now the collection comes in realistic pillar candles, dinner candles and tealight candles in silver, frosted earth, bordeaux, anthracite grey, red, white and cream. In addition, Piffany is pre- senting candlesticks and tealight holders for all kinds of candles. The candlesticks are designed by Pernille Vea. - The advantage of the wax candles with the patented Sompex flame is that they’re controlled by a special chip, which makes the flame wave at random – making for a natural and cozy lighting. The Sompex-candles are extremely reliable, says Lauritz Lykke Smed, owner of the Danish company Piffany Copenhagen, which sells the Sompex- candles in all of Europe. He adds that below 0.3 per cent of the candles are returned due to complaints. An integrated timer makes sure that the candles auto- matically turn off, which increases the durability as well as battery life. As something new, the candles can be controlled using a remote.
