Pipe Screen

Dubitsky converts parts of the ultra-famous Garland lamp shade by Tord Boontje, and transforms them into screens for a creative series of dope smoking pipes. This action seriously pulls design down from the ivory tower, and literally places it into the hands of regular folks. But the actual message and signal is mixed and foggy. In the stripping of a recent design classic, the repurposing of its parts will be lost on most people, who will not recognize the objects actual source.

In the end, the irony of this product, a designers design, is that it will be an inside joke, that only the most design savvy and elite will understand and laugh at.
