Designer's own words: This design concept could be transformed into the candle, lights, installations by purposes. If this product is the semi-transparent version, this is the electronic product 'lights'. And the black candlewick at the top of this product is the button for on and off. If this product is the white or colorful version, this concept could be transformed either the electronic lights product or traditional candle. And the white wick at the top of this product is the button or the wick of the candle.

I define this 'Easy design'
Easy design means designing easily. Design is something that is not huge, artificial, serious, complex, difficult, but the transferring what you think.
