Porsche has designed a Shisha pipe as part of their Porsche Design World Collection. The Shisha will be the latest addition to the collection, which already ranges from chopsticks to a tea and soup set as well as fashion items such as a polo shirt, a jacket and a silk scarf.
The pipe, made in Germany, stands at 55cm tall and is made up of materials such as glass, aluminum and stainless steel. The tube is made using TecFlex, which the brand also uses on the Porsche Design pen range.
Porsche Design, established in 1972 by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, has a portfolio including watches, sunglasses, luggage, electronic products, a men's fragrance line as well as sports apparel and a men's and women's fashion collection.
Dr. Juergen Gessler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group, says, "We came up with the idea to create a so-called World Collection which combines products from different cultural regions."
"The Middle East is an important market for us as one of our first Porsche Design stores is in Dubai."
The Shisha was launched at Porsche Design's store within Harrods department store in Knightsbridge, London, and will hit the shelves at worldwide Porsche Design stores at the end of July.
All Porsche Design products are designed in Zell am See, Austria, and the brand will has confirmed that it will be releasing other luxury brand items later this year.
