Waste Not, Want Not: Wax Recycling Candle

How's this for a sleek implementation of a simple idea: spied at 100% Tokyo, Rice Design has created a real "Why didn't I think of that?" idea. This "candle production machine" collects its own wax drippings from the top candle; burn a couple of votives down and stick a wick in it, and you've got a brand new candle, and, perhaps as importantly, no wax drippings or stains on your furniture. We love it when design makes the most of what we've got, and when it makes something as simple as a wax candle seem so smart. ::designboom via ::NotCot.org
