Smooth Sophisticated Smoking

Smooth Sophisticated Smoking

When I think of pipe smoking, I imagine an older generation of men sitting around reading newspapers or conversing about times gone by. Yet with this new and sleek pipe design by Hakan Bogazpinar, I can see a much more hip, younger crowd partaking in its’ pleasures. Eolos is our modern day pipe. With a smooth, almost aerodynamic design, it looks the Ferrari for pipe smokers.

Imagine a world where the most mundane objects loosely communicate what you’re thinking without speaking a word. It’s just a novel concept but one I wouldn’t mind having in reality.

Mutant Timepiece

Mutant Timepiece

Straight out of Poland, Damian Kozlik has designed an interesting if not confusing timepiece dubbed “X-Watch”. His attempt at a universal time piece able to be used by sighted and the blind is a step in the right direction. Not sure if X marks the right spot on this one but his rubber strap housing carries an array of LEDs behind graduated glass with extruded braille numbers that chris-cross to highlight and center the correct time.

I guess I did and my delete button has been broken for years now (as many of you so lovingly have noticed). Anyhow, this simple and elegant watch design is centered by a cluster of rubies (bling) and circled by two diamond satellites (bling bling).
