Cafes are “third places,” which are spaces apart from home or work where people exchange ideas, have a good time, and build relationships. However, cafes can also face conflicting dynamics because of the need to create productive workspaces while also allowing for socialization.
Crystal Candle Lab is a new cafe in Richmond that offers an enjoyable, immersive experience and provides a comforting sense of ownership over personal space. Its goal is to seamlessly balance the often-conflicting dynamics of work and socializing, empowering individuals to make each moment count and creating a unique experience.
Crystal Candle Lab prioritizes the spatial needs of its customers, aiming to elevate every moment of their experience. It contains three areas - DIY & workshop, candle study cafe, and artistic candle shop.

The logo combines a crystal, firelight, and a test tube. A candle is like a crystal, shining with firelight yet providing warmth. This creates an elegant and cozy vibe that can bring people together. The test tube is the best representation for crafting a candle since you commonly use tools found in a laboratory during the process.
