Newspaper Candle by Tobias Wong

New York Times candle by Tobias Wong
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.
