Destination Inspired Candle Box

“Form follows function” it’s a tailor-made phrase to define our multi-functional packaging design and structural engineering for the Melted Element’s travel candles.
For us, “simple” is more challenging than complex. It is a big challenge to get your thinking clean to make it simple. Plus, you need to focus on functionality as much as simplicity, which brings you to something tough to design. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains, as Steve Jobs said.



This project was a great product design challenge for our team. Thanks to this unique structure, it reveals the candles’ label while inside it and it offers a multi-functional lid that acts both as a perfect closure and a base support that transforms into a display stand when positioned under the box.

Our verified reviews from Jonathan Wossene, the founder of Melted Element.
What services did vve.design provide ?
Full prototyping and engineering for maximum efficiency including complete design. After being approached by a major retailer we were asked to design a three pack of our candles. vve.design came in and designed an amazing product to spec, including full computer-aided design (CAD) engineering, manufacturing support, and custom design.
What are the successful outcomes from the project ?
Due to the success of the first packaging box being created by vve.design, we were able to secure a major retailer and acclaim from customers instantaneously. Which led us to return and have them design our next packaging idea. That also garnered so much attention that other companies were asking us who we used.
What did you find most impressive about vve.design ?
Their vast amount of knowledge, design ideas, and forward-thinking nature stood out. Extremely communicative and not afraid to speak up about their ideas. vve.design was accommodating in every possible way. Every project was treated as if it was one of their own.
