Benesse is inspired by the modern art museum in Naoshima Island; a place where nature and architecture coexist. The museum is renowned for its Oval House, a cave-like structure with a small body of water in the middle. The art form is a play on space, connection, and spirituality.
The Benesse incense holder is made out of porcelain and painted in a unique matte stone colour with a hand-carved finish— a subtle nod towards the muted colours of its namesake.
