The Goobers are a series of scented votives by Tablot & Yoon that subvert the slender and cylindric shape of traditional candles by opting for an abstract design. The candles are shaped like bulges, playing with the folds and creases one might see when playing with different malleable materials. The unique look of the candles offers an experimental and artistic approach to candle design.

While most candles tend to be pillars, the Goobers are rounded forms of wax that have been rolled into a ball and folded in on itself. The design is a part of a study on bulges, meaning that each Goober votive has a completely unique shape. The candles come in an array of colors such as pink and blue with a floral scent of rose.
