RETAINED LANTERN

"A Lantern and A Flashlight Combined"

Every year, In Asia, a lot of plastic handles and light bulbs of lantern that celebrate traditional festival cause a big waste.

“Retained Lantern” is a combination of a flashlight and a lantern handle. Changing it into a flashlight that can be used at home, the product aims for people to keep the handles and light bulbs of the lanterns. By changing new lantern shades, they can be kept for the usage of the next Lantern Festival and Mid-autumn Festival. This not only makes discarded handles and light bulbs disappear, but also makes the product a more effective one.
