Pyropets is Thorunn Arnadottir, an Icelandic designer based in Reykjavík & product designer Dan Koval.
The idea of PyroPet came to Thorunn while studying at the Royal College of Art in London in 2011. After exhibiting the cat candles (called “The Devil’s Pet” back then) in Milan and at her graduation show in London, they quickly gained a lot of attention on the internet. She joined forces with Dan Koval and they launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance their little startup.
The campaign was a great success, in only 4 days they had reached their funding goal and at the end of the campaign they had reached 250% of their initial goal. Thorunn and Dan founded PyroPet Candle Company and are now selling Kisa in shops and galleries all around the world. More products will be added to the collection in the beginning of 2017.
Like the rest of NZ we're shutting up shop for a bit so order dispatch has now closed. We'll be back on board as soon as possible, you're welcome to continue to place orders, we just can't guarantee dispatch time.
Thanks for all of your continued support.
Peace, love, happiness & health - Sarah, Chris & Juniper x
