Yoko Devereaux x DFC: Housewares
I don't smoke, but if I did, I would use one of these new Superflat Ninja Ashtrays (above left). A collaboration with Mexico City's hip houseware brand DFC, Yoko Devereaux expands beyond the tailored knitwear the label's known for to add some well-designed home furnishings. Also included in the collection is the Cabron Bottle Opener (below), a solid brass bottle opener featuring a brass knuckle, and Drink Bullet (above right), a series of six shot glasses housed in a glass case shaped like a bullet.
Incorporating Yoko's Clockwork Orange theme of the season, all pieces allude to violence and could double as a weapon. Hand cut from polished glass the ashtray, like its name states, is very flat, keeping it unobtrusive when not in use and sharp at all times. The shot glasses, made of scientific-grade borosilicate glass, are hand-etched and stem from DFC's Science Series.
The limited-edition series of functional artwork will be available at some specialty and department stores nationwide. High-quality yet accessible, get the Cabron Bottle Opener for $126, the Superflat Ninja Ashtrays for $69 each and a set of Drink Bullets for $450.
