A funeral candle concept

Kateřina Tomášková


Within the theme of "funeral design" I decided to focus on funeral candles. There are a lot of candles on the market, so coming up with a new easy and cheap to make shape turned out to be a dead end. I gradually focused more on the concept itself and what the candle should express. Funeral candle is a symbol of eternal fire, the hope of life after life, the immortality of the human soul. The paradox is that candles only last a few hours. So I decided to use an artificial light source powered by a photovoltaic cell so that the "flame" could burn again and again. Instead of candlelight, I chose a weak green laser that symbolically points to the sky.
