Designer Naihan Li came up with this simple yet surprising design; candles shaped like iconic sky scrapers. You can set fire to some of the world’s tallest structures. The series is aptly called ‘Flammable’ and is joined with a politically correct rationale. Something about an aversion to modern architecture blah-di-blah. Either way, they look awesome and I can imagine it might feel oddly satisfying to light them. It has a nice little Voodoo-touch to it, don’t you think?
Flammable, by Naihan Li, is a series of candles shaped like iconic high rises and skyscrapers.

War Child is a wonderful organisation that helps children in war zones. They recently moved offices, and were in need of a low-budget yet representative new home. After offices along the historic canals of Amsterdam and an old church, the new office, a concrete box on top of a small strip mall, was a bit too much of a cold turkey, so they called in help. They really want to spend as much of the money they have on their projects. So Eckhardt en Leeuwenstein architects, who were commissioned to design the new offices, needed to keep it lean, but mean. And mean it is. I absolutely love the result. Vintage finds from goodwill, all painted in one colour. So simple, so effective.
