In response to Canada’s increasing support for the legalization of marijuana, The Voong was introduced at Toronto Design Week as part of Umbra Ltd.’s Compact Living exhibition   and is now available for purchase in a limited number.

Doubling as a vase, the Voong aligns with the Castor’s existing distinction in the consumer product market, as well as its notoriety for dissident design.

As Canada begins to gauge its comfort with mainstream pot smoking and the inevitability of decriminalization or legalization, an increasing number of design-minded people are in the market for a new aesthetic for paraphernalia. And this piece plays with the idea of a pot culture that is coming out of hiding.

Inspired by this opportunity to modernize an object that has been exclusive to the domain of craft, Castor’s bong features a porcelain vessel glazed on the interior, with a tactile copper neck detail created using a process called electroforming.
