Vestalia

Vestalia is an automated candle light which
runs in an enclosed environment under a
bell jar. The candle can be ignited and
extinguished by a switch. Air is circulated
by fans while smoke gets filtered and blown
away. Vestalia illustrates the mixed blessing
of technification. Thus it may be regarded as
a future gadget conserving the romantic past.
