Claus Bjerre created a witty take on a candle holder. The holder mimics the form of a plumbing pipe with a valve. The valve, besides looking beautiful in its industrial simplicity, actually serves a purpose: it is used as the handle for the candle. It ensures you won't get hot wax on your hands from walking with a lit candle.
At this point, you're probably asking yourself, "Is this guy going to say anything intelligent or eye opening about this piece?"
The answer is no.
The only thing I could think of besides my coveted grunt of approval was that this is just another piece falling into a twenty-first century design mega-trend, which I will call "creative re-purposing," influenced by artists like Marcel Duchamp, to the more current green design movement, and stores like Etsy. Then again, I could be smoking crack.
