Nelumbo | 松锥
This collection of modern incense burners (or incense holders) is inspired by the terrarium. A glass cylinder encloses each piece, allowing the backflow incense plume to descend onto the concrete formation beneath, uninterrupted by air.
Nelumbo is the name of the plant genus that includes the Indian Lotus and its many variations, the inspiration for the design. This incense burner takes the form of a faceted geometric cone – an abstracted hybrid between a lotus bud and a pine cone. As the smoke plume descends from the backflow cone, it breaks into a multitude of tiny streams, winding around each of the cone’s geometric petals.
