Known through­out the world for lux­u­ri­ous, sought-af­ter skin­care prod­ucts, Aus­tralian com­pany Ae­sop has now turned its at­ten­tion to de­sign, launch­ing an oil burner. Pleas­ing on the eye, as well as the nose, the burner was de­signed by Syd­ney­based Stu­dio Henry Wil­son and is crafted from solid brass us­ing an an­cient wax-cast­ing process that makes for sweep­ing curves and in­ten­tion­ally un­even sur­faces, giv­ing each piece in­di­vid­ual char­ac­ter and per­son­al­ity.

Ae­sop’s gen­eral man­ager, Dr Kate Forbes, says: “We col­lab­o­rated with Stu­dio Henry Wil­son to cre­ate a con­tem­po­rary brass ves­sel. It rep­re­sents an in­ter­est­ing new prod­uct di­rec­tion for the com­pany as it com­bines our pas­sions of de­sign, func­tion and scent into one prod­uct.”

The burner can be used with Ae­sop Oil Burner Blends — in­clud­ing new woody, cit­rus scent, Beatrice — and stan­dard­sized tea-light can­dles. $195; www.ae­sop.com.
