As marijuana sheds its illicit past, designers are bringing an elevated aesthetic to its consumption. Last year, to mark the April 20 holiday, we invited a group of designers to reimagine marijuana packaging for a contemporary consumer. This year, we’ve put together a digital guide to the more elegant smoking accessories that double as objets d’art.
From recognizable names like Alessi and Joe Doucet to up-and-comers like Summerland and Sweetflag, more and more brands and designers are producing functional pieces for marijuana enthusiasts. Here are a few of our favorites.
