PEDESTAL FOR SMOKING
In my first year I worked on the design of an intriguing ashtray, which would merge with a pedestal, celebrating that which has turned into an almost criminal act. Whereas so many people enjoy it! In the first trimester of the second year I continued the topic of feeling drawn to, and being addicted to so-called bad habits. Can I, as a designer, come up with solutions that will preserve the benefits (the joy of smoking, the social action, the reputation, …) and solve the problems (of health and air pollution, as well as public space pollution)?
