"Melt and Recreate", devised by Swedish designers Siri Bahlenberg and Sofia Bergfeldt, is a pendant lamp with a lampshade made of ice. By attaching frozen ice with a special mold to the socket, the faint light of the LED lights up.
The ice slowly melts at room temperature for 10 to 12 hours, and when it is completely melted, the lights appear to go out. You can use it again by storing the melted water, putting it in a mold and freezing it. The state of the ice changes each time it freezes, so you can enjoy a different expression of light each time.
The combination of electricity and water seems dangerous, but it seems that safety is ensured by reflecting the light of the LED lamp attached to the socket part to the ice through fiber optics (bundle of glass fiber).
“We wanted to create a connection between the two by having users take part in the product lifecycle rather than making it a finished product,” explains Melt and Recreate. The natural elements of the visuals of ice and the soft sound of dripping water are similar to enjoying a fireplace.
If you look at the lamp that melts more ephemeral than the candle, you will be able to spend more time than usual. I want you to commercialize it.
