Entry Description

Tealights come in a plastic bag or a small box. through research of the market began to wonder why none of the of
the tea light holders had storage for additional candles. I began to develop concepts. I began to think about drawers
and boxes various other compartments. When i remembered a heart shaped jewelry box that belonged to my mother.
The lid of this heart shaped box did not lift off, instead it swiveled. How could I solve the problems of storage, and
removal of the candle and reach my goal of turning this mundane product into something extraordinary? I looked to
kinetics, A design that would make the candle more accessible and provide you with a replacement. I set to prototype
a simple mechanism that would lift the candle up as the box was opened. The used can swivel the lid elevating the
dead candle for easy removal.
