Door, torch for religion / Personal Torch

Door, torch for religion
Door, torch for religion

Problem was that 70% of the church fires were caused by candles within the US. Religion is an important part of a culture, which is why a safer torch was designed. ‘Religions are different doors to one room’ was the inspiration. Religions have an idea of an afterlife, which you would enter through a door. A light panel inside the torch represents the light affect of this. In religions, sharing light symbolizes sharing hope among prayers. Based on that, electro magnet technology sits on the top of the torch, and when touched by another torch that is turned on, it turns on, emphasizing on the connection that religion brings within a community.
