Design v. mosquito

mosquito_coil_2

 

Two takes on the same design challenge: how to contain mosquito-repelling “incense” coils. Oftentimes the cheap holders included with mosquito coils are flimsy and inadequate for prolonged use, and sturdier substitutes must be found or developed. Both approaches feature repurposed/recycled components. Fairly obvious with the coconut, but the white-painted metal container needs a closer look. Each corner has a recycled metal nut attached to serve as a “foot”, while the design within the squares (meant for both stability/durability and aesthetic points) are repurposed metal washers welded to one another.
