OAO Works Wax Candle

At the Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan this month, Vancouver- and Berlin-based product designer Omer Arbel will launch a new company called OAO Works by premiering a candle made by pouring hot beeswax into a rotating drum with ice. The piece’s root-like tendrils are so delicate that it can only be shipped frozen inside a block of ice. “The piece arrives, the ice melts and then a person lights the candle, then the wax melts,” says Arbel. “It’s this beautiful iterative process of transforming a material.”
