The New York Times candle was one of the late object designer Tobias Wong‘s last concepts.
Within the current fascination with scents and, especially, experimental scents, Wong proposed producing a candle with the fragrance of newsprint inspired by the New York Times, an institution he greatly admired and with which he had a longstanding relationship.
The project was never actualized in Wong’s lifetime, but Bondtoo, a New York based studio and gallery got together with Project No. 8 to realize his final work. Wong’s Times of New York candle in available in an edition of 100 for $65 each. Look for it here, or if you’re broke, you could also go burn some free local dailies.
