Blow On-Off Candles.

April 7th, 2008 · 4 Comments

LED candles are becoming increasingly popular in the industrial design marketplace. I’ve seen a bunch of different designs at Vessel but nothing nearly as innovative as these Blow On-Off Candles. They’re made of solid wax and even have a pretty realistic flickering flame, but when you blow on them, they turn off and on. Pressing a button on the bottom of the object activates the flame mechanism, a breath of air across the top of the candle controls the flame. Watch the video below to see how they work, then go buy them online.

    You’re right – the exchange rate stniks at the moment against the euro. Don’t let that stop you though. If you haven’t been to Paris, it’s the most incredible city on the planet and you have to check it out. I lived on and off in New York for years and always thought of it as the center of the universe but I have to tell you, Paris is a place like non other. I lived there for three years, working in fashion as well, and it is definitely somewhere you have to go. I was there just last summer (honeymoon – second time around) and I picked Paris because it is the coolest and most romantic place on earth. You can rent an apartment from a woman named Isabelle (www.apartment-in-france.com) which enables you to have a lot of your meals at home, and buy your own wine by the bottle. It cuts down on expenses and saves money for splurging at dinner. You can walk almost anywhere, or ride bikes that are rented on the street in any neighborhood. Anyway – sorry to ramble. I just know Paris would blow you away!

    Thanks for the birthday wsiehs everyone! The girl in the photo is me. I was trying to count how many candles were on the cake to see how old I was but I’m not sure. I think I might have been five. I definitely remember that crown though! As an only child, birthdays were a big day…and they still are 😉
