HOLMES VAPORIZER PIPE. November 8, 2016 Design 0 Comments
The Peterson of Dublin is an irish cigar pipe company famous for their craftsmanship. The company celebrated their 150th anniversary in year 2015. As an industrial designer I started this project to commend the heritage of their craftsmanship and history,
The company is well known and loved by pipe smokers for their Sherlock Holmes Series established on 1987. This project focuses on
proposing the next generation of Sherlock Holmes Series as a vaporizer of today’s needs to honor the original model they started in 1987.
The Holmes Pipe is a vaporizer for Peterson of Dublin. The project focuses on fusing the analog and retro designs of original pipes with electronic vaporizers of today’s needs. The elements of the Holmes Pipe is the Vaporizer and the charging cradle.
To maximize the Character lines of the design, the other elements of the pipe was designed in minimal manners.
The led indicator on the bowl interacts to the inhalation of the pipe, making a swirl of light just like the original pipe. I thought this was very essential design element for vapers to feel the analog sentiments of original pipes.
The +, – pads trigger the voltage of the vaporizer which controls the depth of the flavour.
Designing the Holmes Pipe, I found that most of the vaporizers have triggers on the bottom or side of the body.Due to the stick shape, the triggers are designed to press easier with the thumb. On the other hand, the pipe should be held differently, which triggers should be designed to easily press with index fingers, so I designed a new trigger for the pipe design
Vapers always have trouble with dust and other kind of foreign substances stuck between the mouth piece. This is due to the open type mouth piece designs. Because of this, some products come with sealing caps. Instead of sealing caps I designed a new drawer type.
mouth piece for vapers so that they can always keep their mouth piece hygiene, The intake hole was moved from side to the top so when the mouth piece is closed the intake hole is completely sealed from environment.
Designing the charging dock for the Holmes Pipe, I tried to find a way to maximize the design while its charging. By using glass as cmf for the stand, the pipe could seem as if its floating by itself.Design HOLMES VAPORIZER PIPE.
