The Devil’s Pet Candle

April 18, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Thorunn Arnadottir is a London-based designer originally from Iceland. Her latest project, The Devil’s Pet, is an innocent geometric kitten candle that once lit reveals a ghostly metal skeleton.

The ball of yarn is the candle wick itself, so it will end up as a devilish looking scorned cat skeleton with the ball of yarn on fire on its side. […] The candle brings to light (literally) the contrasting and rich typologies attached to an every day object such as a candle and how we seem to have lost sight of it’s original function and meaning.
