Sunset Candles by Nendo
The Candle of the Setting Sun
Need something to liven up the long dark winter nights? Prolific Japanese design studio Nendo has come up with a functional and poetic solution.
Inspired by the colours of the sunset sky, Sunset candles look like normal white block candles on the outside, but as they burn down, the centre of the candles change colour, from yellow, orange, red, purple to eventually blue. The different colours also come with their individual scents (bergamot, lemongrass, sweet marjoram, lavender and geranium). We can think of no better way to bring the romance of a beautiful tropical sunset to inside your home.

Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
Founded by furniture designers Josefine Krabbe Munck, Kamma Rosa Schytte, Kasper Kyster and Lærke Ryom, Ukurant showcases experimental products from emerging designers which straddle the border between art and commerce.
