Matchstick Installation Literally Ignites Ideas

Although it's certainly a huge fire hazard, designers Tannah Stroebel and Rae Alexander took the inspiration phrase “Igniting Ideas” and turned it into an actual literal installation. Thousands of matches were used to complete the piece, which was completed during Stroebel's internship at BOOMTOWN. I could totally see this piece placed outdoors and and used as an excellent visual prop for an inspiration workshop. The piece also reminds us of another brilliant matchstick installation, Burning Love, by our good friend, Pei-San Ng.
