The Surface 4/20 Gift Guide

A $2,000 ashtray and eight other design objects that defy the stoner stereotype.

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.
