Playful Candelier

Happy Sunday to you.

In my constant search for all things fun, this Candelier by Jellio has popped up onto my radar.

Look in the lower photo and tell me what you see? Yes, you're right. Those are gummi bears.

This light, designed by Kevin Champeny, is one of 10 that uses over 5,000 acrylic gummi bears in a process that takes over 2 months to complete.

I love the repetition of a single item to create a different look. Kind of like pixels shaped like little colorful bears.

And if you think about it, this can be done in a similar way in glass. Whether with commercial beads, or ones of your own making.

With the acrylic, this light weighs about 50 lbs. I'm sure glass would require a lot more arm strength and much stronger bolts in the ceiling to hang it.

But can you imagine the constant amusement and fun that it would create? It's like a visual candy store in a functional item without the calories!

The company Jellio, is committed to providing unique home furnishings reminiscent of fun childhood memories. Visit their website for items like ..(one of my favorites) an ice cream sandwich bench, a lite bright style table and slider wall art similar to those little puzzles that you had to move around.
