Christian Zanzotti's IOOI Hookah design brings a contemporary touch to an old-world apparatus. The Munich-based designer typically busies himself with product, furniture and vehicle design, but he has thought very much outside the box with this latest conception.
The design has been updated with a barrage of modern materials, including polished brass, anodized aluminium and 3D printed accessories, as well as standard automotive fabrication.
The hookah, which is made in Germany, is only for serious smokers: each one is crafted individually upon request. So if you were hoping to casually pick one up on the way home from work, you're out of luck. However, if you are an aforementioned "serious smoker," this sleek piece has a timeless feel that's perfect for any collector.
This Modern Hookah Design Lets You Smoke in Style
