The Italian design company Alessi has now added a new product to their line of baskets, fruit bowls and containers.

The ‘Cohndom Box’ is a steel condom case designed by Australian silversmith Susan Cohn to protect precious prophylactics from being punctured or damaged from heat.

Implications - The expiry date of condoms is cause for much concern amongst a wider demographic than young adults who keep prophylactics in their wallets. Today's parent is becoming increasingly older, causing affluence within the contraceptive industry. This steel condom case is an example of the value placed on safe sex and the prevention of unwanted birth, providing commentary on today's society and the attitude towards procreation.
