Ridge Loop Incense Burner

Ridge Loop | 回旋圈

Our Ridge series of incense holders (or incense burners) explores the intersection of the organic and platonic geometric forms. The movement of water underlies each of the pieces, chosen because water is a central tenet of traditional Chinese aesthetics and sensibilities. Throughout history, the famed Chinese Gardens – always composed with ponds as centerpieces – was a place of calm and inspiration for poets, scholars and the imperial household alike.

The Ridge Loop is a simple square, enclosing a series of ripples that center around the bronze ball holding the incense. The ripples traces out a pattern which is circular on one side, and joined at a 45 degree angle on the other. The trace of the ridges recalls the shape of a waterdrop, a feather, a mandala.

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.

We recommend gently wiping with a damp cloth shortly after use. Do not rinse directly under water. Metal parts will be very hot during and immediately after burning, care should be taken to avoid injury.

Avoid contact with oily or colored substances as these will stain the concrete.

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.

Re-interpreted with a unique, modern aesthetic

Kin objects showcase minimal designs with clean lines.

Bill Yen, the award-winning architect and designer behind Kin, brings over 15 years of experience. Kin objects are developed from scratch in our Shanghai studio, and are painstakingly designed, re-designed, prototyped and re-prototyped .

A beautiful balance:
Acceptance, Calmness
and Belonging

The result are objects that capture the balance of traditional Chinese culture with a modern lifestyle in its most beautiful form.

Kin creates 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.
