Bring Elements of Wabi Sabi and Raw Fire Into Your Home With FLÎKR

If you’ve ever sat around a campfire enthralled with the flames and how they dance around, crackling and changing shape, then you know the joys of an open flame. The lights of a flickering flame are one of the most basic human enjoyments. And FLÎKR has been developed to bring this simple human joy into our homes in a safe way.

Made from cement, this candle-esque device embraces the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi. This is a Japanese aesthetic concept that values the beauty of imperfection, impermanence, and incompleteness. It’s a philosophy that appreciates imperfections and the unique character of objects, delighting in signs of aging and wear as a testament to its use. In a general sense, it’s a worldview that values humility, naturalness, and simplicity. The raw cement form embodies wabi-sabi.

Powered simply with rubbing alcohol – either 70% or 91% isopropyl alcohol can be used. Just 5 ounces provides roughly 50 minutes of burn time where you can relax and enjoy the flickering flames. If you’re worried about soot, don’t be. Soon only appears where the flame touches, placing it in the open eliminates this problem.
