In the land of the midnight sun, light and fire has an almost mythical meaning.
“A cherished tradition for us Scandinavians is to light garden torches in the afternoon or evening when guests are coming for dinner. Either in the garden or outside the door, the welcoming burning flames symbolizes festivities. We use them all year around, even though my favourite time of year is to light up my garden during long summer evenings”, says Eero Koivisto.
The garden torch in dark anthracite grey adds an aesthetic quality to any garden or park, either as a solitaire or in a formation. During daylight, the torch becomes a fine element in the outdoor room. The dark, almost black, colour also has a practical function – it is forgiving to the soot formed by burning. Before applying the powder-paint coating, the steel is entirely galvanized for rust protection.
The size of the container is optimized for the standard tin cup, 10 cm diameter garden candle known in Swedish as “marschall”, and in other parts of the world as “garden candle”, “windproof outdoor candle” or similar.
