Designer Benjamin Shine’s clever candleholder allows melting wax to be deposited into an acrylic tube, where it cools and reforms into a slightly smaller version of its original
self (some wax is unavoidably lost during the burning process). The Rekindle is not only a piece of wax-saving decor, the clever design could prove invaluable during prolonged electricity outages or in underdeveloped areas.
