Skyscraper candles set the design world alight

A Beijing-based designer has sculpted a range of candles resembling famous skyscrapers, such as the Empire State Building and the ‘Gherkin’.

Architect Naihan Li created the ‘Flammable’ series as a reaction against the trend for extravagant towers and wrote: ‘watching them burn down can be truly satisfying’.

Sold online, the white wax candles are over a foot tall and are to scale, carved to capture the unique look and shape of each iconic building.

Naihan is known for her collaborations with the famous artist Ai Weiwei and for her work at OMA .

Take a look at Naihan’s ‘Flammable’ gallery here and tell us if you would want these landmark candles in your home.
