Welcome to the DIIO Lifestyle

Welcome to the DIIO Lifestyle Blog. Here you’ll find all kinds of things from “how to’s”, to our top picks, music, designer features and more! What’s most important to us is building a community for the DIIO Lifestyle store and it starts here. Get in contact with us to contribute to the #DIIOLifestyle.

To kick things off, we thought we would take it easy and talk through some of our latest additions to the store. 

Say hello to the Goober Candles. It’s cute, round and so much more than a blob. Designed in New York by architects Mark Talbot and Youngjin Yoon, the Goober Candles are an experiment on shape and form. Their design is an adaptation of the fundamental design principles of animations - ‘squash and stretch’. This concept goes back to the early days of Disney animation in the 1930’s where creators personified sacks of flour with emotions from surprised, elated, sad and so on. 

Talbot and Yoon said that they took the principle and relevant creation myth on board when creating their candles. They squashed and stretched lumps and imagined the emotions their audience might feel during the process of viewing and lighting these candles. 

The Goober Candle is the kind of candle you have out on display on your bedside. We find them warm and reassuring little blobs and love the way this candle melts when burning and the soft glow it produces, a sweet little mood setter for any occasion, with a rich design history.
