Motion + Balance + Flame

For a recent submission for the Curse the Darkness show in NYC, I designed this new type of candle mobile. It holds small candles at the end of each arm, and features a gimbal mechanism that I employed to keep the candles level as their mass changes while burning. I’m pleased with how it turned out, and hopefully the selection committee at the American Design Club and Roll & Hill is interested. Regardless, this style of mobile is now in the repertoire!
