Tennen Incense

Founded in 2001 by Ethan Wessel and Sarah Swartz Wessel, Tennen is a multidisciplinary architectural firm based in Phoenix, USA. Their Sonoran Desert incense collection is part of a collaboration with Kyoto incense makers and was influenced by the constant and soothing presence of Japanese incense around the Tennen Studio offices. From buildings to aromas, Tennen’s design projects pursue aesthetic simplicity inspired by the culture and design sensibilities of Japan - honesty of materials, minimalism, and the changing seasons.
