smokeless cigarette's Holder Designers

Akihiro Kumagaya Design

As an extensional behavior of smelling cigar smoke, I came to think of the action of breathing in the forest.Since tobacco belongs to eggplant family, I collected twigs and logs to study how to breathe in the forest.Taking the familiar form of wooden pipe and reminding the way of smoking with a pipe, this holder is made of raw wood and rough timber that smell even wilder. The lasting scent of the wood and its texture reminds that of real wood and makes one feel like smoking the scent directly from the wood.

This is a story created by three tools having different characters. Many stories, comics, and animations feature a unit of 3 characters. Maybe this is because 3 is the minimum number that creates infinite development of the story. I created 3 characters out of the same purpose, material, and making condition.
