As with all of his past creations, Revitalizer by Merve Kahraman is both creative and clever. It is a high-voltage light that continually melts its wax lampshade. The kicker is that the lampshade is constantly resurrected thanks to the molded cup resting beneath it. Catching every last drop of wax, the cup reshapes it into the lampshade it once was to be used again.

A beautiful and ever-changing concept, Revitalizer by Merve Kahraman is always forming new shapes and different intensities of light as it melts. The London-based designer wanted to ensure that it remain as captivating as the first time it was turned on. According to Kahraman and Psfk, it represents the "'poetic transformation through metamorphosis' where the wax is a symbol for the death and rebirth of an object."
