Melting Wax Lamp / Lamp

Melting Wax Lamp

The form design of this lamp is inspired by glacier melting. With the wax lampshade and incandescent lamp bulb as the light sources, shape of the lamp can be changed due to the following process: the wax is softened and slowly runs down, which is too slow to cause the drop of wax. Changes in form can remind people to turn off the light to save electric power and have the awareness of energy saving. The highlight of this concept is that it gives vitality to the product, so that they can act as if they are alive and interact with users.
