For a lot of pot smokers, marijuana and pizza go hand in hand. Now, a designer from New York City has come up with an idea for your munchy cravings: a pizza box and pipe, all in one.
A New York City designer has come up with a pizza box design that doubles up as a pipe to smoke marijuana.
An app called Push for Pizza allows users to order at the touch of a button a pizza delivered in a box one section of which peels away and folds into a smokeable pipe.
The cardboard forms the sides of the pipe, and the little plastic piece that keeps the box top from crushing the pizza becomes the bowl—though it isn’t plastic here but temperature-resistant white ceramic.
‘It is common to crave food when one gets high. It is also typical practice to order a quick pizza to satisfy this craving. We are aware of these trends and decided to combine these two interests in a actual product,’ says Push For Pizza co-founder Cyrus Summerlin to AdWeek.
He says that including the pipe, which they designed in collaboration with Nikolas Gregory‘s design studio, helps to make the pot-to-pizza path pretty painless.
While the image of the lazy, couch-dwelling marijuana user is changing as drug laws loosen, one thing that will remain constant is the tightly woven relationship between pizza and pot.
‘The pizza is in hand before the munchies set in, leading to a more relaxed and enjoyable experience without the interminable delay of its delivery or the pain of gnawing hunger,’ Summerlin tells AdWeek. ‘And the pipe comes at no additional cost. Its materials are 100 percent recyclable.’
The pipe is apparently durable and has been tested.
The bowl piece is constructed using a ceramic, though should it go into mass production, they would likely use a temperature-resistant vegetable-based recyclable plastic to cut costs.
Gregory says that there are no plans for production, but that could change based on how well the invention is received.
