Have you ever been in a blackout situation due to an electric cut? How annoying is it to find yourself in the dark not knowing where to go. We are glad to tell you that the problem is over.
This candle solves the problem using an specific material made out of a mixture of paraffin wax and glowing powder. This combination creates a glow-in-the-dark wax that is casted into a mould and becomes our candle. The design allows a space to host a box of matches, in order the have always on hand a match, close to the candle to light it up.
During the day the candle rests as a regular decoration object, getting charged by sunlight, to be used in an emergency situation.
During an electricity cut, the candle glows in the dark, so that it can be easily seen, and thanks to the matchbox in the same body is also easy to light up.
Clever idea and simple design.
