Mountain and Lake | 湖

This concrete incense holder (or incense burner) was the first object that inspired our incense range. It draws upon two important elements of traditional Chinese culture: mountain and water. A cone-shaped backflow incense sits atop the mountain, directing the incense plume gently downwards into the basin, slowly and mesmerisingly forming a lake of smoke.

Size:

11.5 (L) x 8.5 (W) x 3.8 (H) cm |

4.5 (L) x 3.3 (W) x 1.5 (H) inches

Color: slate grey

Material: concrete & gold tint stainless steel

Package includes: incense holder/burner x 1, some backflow incense to get you started

As our concrete products are individually hand-made, each one will be different. Characteristics such as air bubbles, slight unevenness, minor scratches or bumps were all incurred in the production process and are unavoidable due to the nature of concrete. These are not considered defects unless they affect the functioning of the product.

Inspired by the richness of traditional Chinese culture

Kin draws its inspirations from thousands of years of Chinese history.

Fragrances, or incense, known as 香 (xiang) in Chinese, was treasured in ancient China and first used in the royal palace. The first Chinesebook of fragrances was written as far back as the 5th century.

Kin's backflow incense holder collection is inspired by traditional Chinese mountain-scape. Mountains are revered in Chinese culture, and emperors and peasants alike have pilgrimaged there over the centuries to seek fortune, wisdom and peace with themselves.

Re-interpreted with a unique, modern design aesthetic

Kin re-interprets Chinese culture with a distinctly modern aesthetic.

Kin objects showcase minimal designs with clean lines. They are made from a fine, high-grade concrete for an elegant industrial finish.

Bill Yen, the award-winning designer behind the Kin collections, brings over 15 years of design experience to Kin. Kin objects are developed from scratch in our Shanghai studio, and are painstakingly designed, re-designed, prototyped and re-prototyped before they go into production.

A beautiful balance:
Objects that bring you acceptance, calmness and belonging

The result is a collection of objects that captures the contradictions of traditional Chinese culture with a modern lifestyle in its most beautiful form.

We created Kin to find the balance in these contradictions. We created Kin to make objects for our homes that embrace seemingly contradictory influences in our lives; objects that ground us, accept us, bring us a sense of calm, and give us a sense of belonging.

"BRUTALLY BEAUTIFUL INCENSE HOLDERS"
