DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
MEDUSE PIPES-worldwide unique shisha

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Shisha, Hookah, Nargile

INSPIRATION:
Elegant organic lines are inspired by underwater sea life. A shisha pipe like a mysterious animal getting alive with every inhalation. - transparency – translucency – illumination – mystical – relax – slow down – slow motion - breath – exhalation - My idea of design was to uncover all interesting processes that take place in the pipe such as bubbling, smoke flow, fruit mosaic and the play of lights. I have achieved this by maximizing the glass proportion and mainly by uplifting the functional area to the eye level, instead of traditional shisha pipes where its almost hidden on the ground level. Using real fruit pieces inside the glass corpus for cocktails enhances the experience to the new context Formally I than tried to combine traditional handicraft like art smithery, hand glassblowing in combination with modern methods and technologies. This hand made production also gives to each piece stamp of originality and exclusivity which is also supported by unique production number and certificate. Shisha pipe smoker spend one or two hours in smoking session, which is quite a long time, my key aim was to bring extraordinary experience, to bring it to the new and higher level..

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
• Key aim is to offer demanding smoker additional value into very traditional concept, which smoking of water pipe for centuries is. • In time where there was no other shisha than traditional one I wanted to make shisha concept in absolutely new way, in the best quality and perfection (like driving Lamborghini car) • Use of unique fruit & tobacco coctails. Form is designed to prepare shisha with real fruit pieces - coctail in glass corpus - has never been done before.
