BLUE LIGHT - candle enhancer


I developed this concept during the master of art in design, Creative Academy, in 2011.

The class was asked to develop projects of objects, with or without a function, inspired to the world of Van Cleef & Arpels and to the extraordinary trips of Jules Verne (theme of the brand's 2011 high jewellery collection).

We could chose between four different materials and, for this concept, I choose ceramic.

Based on the novel“Five weeks in a balloon” it wants to recreate the lightness of a balloon using a heavy material. Matte white outside, simple and light, and shiny blue inside (the favourite colour of the brand). The object appears like an upside-down vase in witch, instead of putting water, we can put a little candle to illuminate the blue inside and remind the fire that makes the ballon fly, to start a little trip.
