CANDLE LIGHT BULB: Die Electric Candull

by , 10/01/07

Die Electric, Die Electric Candull, Lightbulb Candle Design, Designer Scott Amron, Design for zero-energy consumption, Design against energy use

Just because your lamp requires lightbulbs doesn’t mean a candle won’t do the job just as well! Our last installment of the Die Electric collection is the cheeky and low-tech Candull candle-light, which replaces the common energy-sapping bulb with a low-tech yet equally functional candle. The candle is even adapted with a screw-base to fit directly into your desk lamp. Like the rest of Scott Amron’s Die Electric creations, Candull takes a wryly clever approach to energy efficiency, removing the energy entirely and replacing it with a dash of wit.

    In response to Tim:

    I can’t answer your question but I know how much energy I spent reading about this moronic design concept

    What a ridiculous post!

    I suppose if he finds ten idiots…. that will be $560 that he didn’t have before. It’s all about money.

    My back-of-the-envelope calculation says there’s about a kilowatt hour of energy in a 100g candle (assuming 42kilojoules per gram – thanks google). That’s enough to run a 100watt lightbulb for 10 hours…

    Although of course candles are a thousand times less efficient at creating light than an ordinary bulb. Nice visual gag though.

    Wow… does this company have nothing better to do than create more unnecessary novelty products? This is a waste of wax and wick. Do they have a candle to replace my refrigerator bulb?

    Out of curiosity, anyone know how much energy it takes to make a candle?
