Comments Off on This Brilliant Rekindle Candlestick Turns Melted Wax Into a Fresh New Candle

Designer Benjamin Shine has created a brilliant regenerative candle holder that transforms melted wax into a fresh new candle! The Rekindle Candlestick lets users reuse a candle over and over again by collecting the wax in a tube as it burns. To reuse the candle wax, a fresh wick just needs to be introduced into the tube of newly melted wax. Although the quantity of wax reduces slightly with each cycle, a typical candle can be reused at least twelve times after the first burn.

Comments Off on PICS: Shigeru Ban’s Camper Store is a Cardboard-Topped House of Shoes in NYC

If you’re a Shigeru Ban fan living in NYC, we urge you to head down to check out the starchitect’s newest work , the Camper shoe store in SoHo . The design is decidedly “Ban,” and features a pitched cardboard tube roof that looks a lot like the Christchurch Cathedral’s , except flattened out to blend better into its urban surroundings. And if you’re a BAN-atic living in another city, don’t fret. We’ve got a whole photo gallery of pics of the curious new retail space, so don’t miss them.
