Werner Mummert: Sandblasted Optical Illusion Poker
Product Number: 002-560-0165
These Optical Illusion pipes from Werner Mummert are, as you might imagine, a bit mind-bending. In profile, it is designed to look as though it's a fairly traditional Poker design, with a cylindrical bowl and just a touch of asymmetrical waver to the rim. From above, however, the illusion is broken — the bowl is actually subtly paneled, aligned into more of a diamond shape than the traditional Foursquare, its edges softly rounded to maintain its smooth profile. It's a clever design, and one we would expect from no one other than the German artisan who is so well-known for his unusual shapes. The finish, too, is quite fetching — a crisp, low-profile sandblast dressed in a red-hued contrast, the latter bringing out some bright licks of flame through the bowl's texture.- Rachel DuBose
