Available for purchase from Tokyo Smoke.
Canada is at the forefront of change with the upcoming nationwide legalization of cannabis. It’s an opportunity to bring considered, well designed products to a wider range of existing and new cannabis consumers.
The Heirloom Stack is designed by Castor Design for Tokyo Smoke—a Canadian, design-driven lifestyle brand. The set is precisely cast from heat-resistant pink borosilicate glass, and includes all the essentials in one stackable shape: a pipe, an ashtray, and a grinder with a space for storage in its reverse side. The grinder component of the stack features a pattern derived from traditional millstones to achieve a greater grind consistency and a perfect burn.
The three-piece set evokes the charm of a vintage candy dish—one that your grandmother might have owned.
Canada is at the forefront of change with its nationwide legalization of cannabis. It’s an opportunity to bring considered, well-designed products to a wider range of existing and new cannabis consumers. The set is designed by Castor Design for Tokyo Smoke—a Canadian, design-driven lifestyle brand. It includes a pipe, a grinder, a storage bowl, and a rolling tray.
The tray is machined from HDPE sheets with spaces for holding tools and for storing whole and ground plant product. The slot in the tray can be used to hold a rolling paper for easy filling from the storage space beside it.
The shape for the tray and the grinder draws upon Tokyo Smoke’s lantern logo. The grinder uses the traditional milling pattern also found in the heirloom Stack pipe set, allowing for an easy, consistent grind.
The pipe is a discrete one-hitter that can be pre-loaded and covered with the heat shrink sleeve for convenient storage. The storage bowl has a polyurethane stopper that keeps plant product freshly sealed in a scent-protecting container. The storage bowl’s shape is informed by the base of a fire extinguisher. The stopper is available in red or black.
The Skrillex Mirror uses a rear-mounted speaker to vibrate the mirror’s surface in time with movements in music. With the music turned off it functions as a standard mirror, but with music playing the reflection becomes dynamic. The Skrillex Mirror plays the dubstep artist’s Top 5 Bass Drops (as determined by Castor) to have the greatest impact on the surface vibration.
Castor Design used the Aluminum Group Show as an opportunity to further explore an area of interest through the Royal Castor Telescopy Club, a division of its Sciences and Humanities Division.
For the show, Castor has produced a fully functioning Newtonian reflecting telescope. Named after its inventor, this type of telescope has a concave “primary mirror” at its lower end (8” 1200mm f/6 mirror), and a diagonal “secondary mirror” at the end of the eyepiece. The telescope uses a Dobsonian pivoting base to locate its focus, and sits atop a rotating platform.
