AKB Meerschaum: Smooth Bent Apple (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-0078
Like all magnificent things, this smooth bent Apple from AKB Meerschaum is very simple, but don't take my word for it. Renaissance man and reining polymath Leonardo da Vinci once said "Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication", the quote giving us insight into his ability to simplify design by hacking away the superfluous, because "Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence".
Meerschaum, to me, is a material that is most potent when it pushes extremes, whether elaborately carved in an ornamental, Victorian-esque forests of choking vines and anthropomorphic Greek deities, or something as deliciously zen as this piece you see before you.
