Modern Incense Kits

The Blakebrough + King Incense Kit is Simple and Elegant

— October 15, 2014 — Art & Design
Burning incense is an ancient tradition that still looks as though it belongs in a past era; not so with this modern incense kit. Although simple and elegant as many other incense kits, it boasts a more unobtrusive design that would suit contemporary homes and studios much better. Clean and refined, the holders are finished with a stripe of copper that adds a nice detail to the overall look.

Designed by Blakebrough + King, the workshop of Australian design duo Ben Blakebrough and Sarah K, the incense kit comes complete with Japanese cedar incense in addition to the holders. This incense kit would make a great gift for Secret Santa gift exchanges and other similar holiday rituals.
