About 54Celsius

54Celsius innovates the classic candle, one unique design at a time. We embrace the bold and the strange, the mythical, the cosmic, and the timeless - all to create striking pieces that glow with play and delight.

Using only top-quality ingredients, we ensure that every part of the burning process is clean and safe. That means recyclable or compostable packaging and intentional, traceable candle ingredients.

We develop products in-house, collaborate with visionary product designers, and source from multiple generations of candlemakers to bring the inventive to your home. From unboxing your candle to the flame's last flicker, every element of the 54Celsius experience is made to charm.

Thorunn Arnadottir

Co-Founder and Creative Director

Thorunn spends her days figuring out how to turn the mundane into the divine. Well, divine might not be quite the right word - rather, unexpected, gorgeous, thought provoking, and preposterously fun. Could it be Iceland? Maybe endlessly bumping into the same people sends the imagination into uncharted territory.

Dan Koval

Co-Founder and Managing Director

Dan lives for turning a great concept into a finished product and then fostering it until it holds its own in the marketplace. He gets giddy with excitement about the details that make most people's eye's droop to half-mast. Factory tour? Woohoo! Anyone fancy a pint and a long discussion about distribution strategy? Who's up for a late-night chat about environmentally friendly packaging materials?

Jana Hercoga

Operations Manager

Jana is in the business of "now". That means orders going out now, new stock arriving now, answers to distributor and retailer questions now, and keeping the accounts up to date now. In short: everything... now. If Jana had an avatar, it would be the 6 armed Hindu Goddess, Durga.
