Fipa is A Luxury Platinum Cigarette Holder for Women

Fipa luxury platinum cigarette holder is a brand new smoking concept specially designed for women with tasted tobacco in individual units. The main starting point of this business development plan was figuring out a design solution that would give a feel like a woman’s smoking device. This understanding led the founder to develop Fipa as a luxury icon for women. The inspiration came from the women in the golden era from 1940s to 1960s, when using a cigarette holder was a common issue to maintain a decent distance from mouth to cigarette. Lawrence Chu, an exceptionally talented Canadian designer, designed the final form of chromium-platinum Fipa.

From the website:

“We looked back in history and discovered that until the end of the Victorian period it was quite well accepted for women to smoke pipes in Europe, but due to cultural changes it became unfashionable, thus eventually becoming associated strictly with masculinity over the course of the last century.

The real inspiration came from looking at women in the golden age of smoking, from the 1940s to the 1960s, when it was common to use a cigarette holder to extend the distance from cigarette to mouth to cool the smoke. You can probably guess that this culminated in the iconic image of Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with long black gloves and equally long black cigarette holder.

It was this image that convinced us that, for an object, the secret to feminine elegance is a simple linear slenderness. That’s what we tried to communicate in the fipa.”

  1. Designers have a social conscious, so making products that actually can kill people and add so much in health costs, is rather in very poor judgment. Sorry, but bad idea.

  2. Disgusting!!! and above all what a waste of time and resources. There is no bad habit more repulsive than smoking cigtarettes, especially in women since it's such a huge factor in many birth defects. All that money time and resource could've been obviously better spent on something to improve human health, shame on you.

  3. People are well aware that smoking can harm you, but if people want to do it they should be able to. In moderation, smoking is fine. Trust me, I know a guy who smoked in moderation for 70 years and he's still perfectly healthy, inside and out.

    This isn't a bad idea so much as it needs to be improved. There are several designs for non tobacco digital cigarettes that still satisfy but don't harm the lungs. That is what they should of done with this.

    • "People are well aware that smoking can harm you, but if people want to do it they should be able to. In moderation, smoking is fine. Trust me, I know a guy who smoked in moderation for 70 years and he’s still perfectly healthy, inside and out." –> I know already eight or nine people who<ve died from cigarette smoking and another seven who are hospitalized because of it and others who are ill but not hopitalized for the same reason…yeah, moderation changes everything!

    • "This isn’t a bad idea so much as it needs to be improved. There are several designs for non tobacco digital cigarettes that still satisfy but don’t harm the lungs. That is what they should of done with this." –> this still encourages smoking and if your digital thing isn't working, where will you go for your fix? To get a pack of smokes?

  4. all of you need to simply learn to LEAD YOUR OWN LIVES and stop believing EVERYTHING the public shoves down your throat. Smoking can be dangerous, but to most it is not. I have been smoking for 25 years, and i look better than many of my girlfriends that have never lifted a cigg in their whole entire lives. Learn to keep your opinions, of what other ADULTS DO,…to simply as THEIR business, as far as the cigarette holder,……oh yes daaaaaaaaaaarling,.i will be getting one if i can

  5. I think this item is stunning. Lines are contemporary, yet – not pedestrian. Style concious while being attractive to a "real life" consumer. I feel, the Asian inspitation of design flows bueatifully into the Native aspects of Peace.

  6. Wow… your hostile. It happens. you should grab a smoke and lighten up. And there IS something more disgusting then smokers…Ketchup on KD. OH and guys wearing socks and sandles. THAT should be out lawed. Try not to let it get to you…Smiles sunshine…it's a bueatiful day.

What we must realize is that grossness is relative. What I think is gross may not be gross to someone else, essentially making it not gross at all. Smoking, is horrible for your health, ketchup is nothing more than processed ingredients (not all food…or healthy), socks and sandals are a way to keep your feet warm when it is too hto to wear closed shoes

  7. This is one of those inventions that is a waste of resources and quite frankly a waste of anyone's time. No government in thier right mind will endorse a product that wil possibly lead to more deaths. It is stupid and a waste of valuable time that could have been used designing something that will actually be beneficial to humanity.

What, however, in our society is NOT a waste of resources? Some things exist but not many…Governments are corrupt. Even the least corrupt are corrupt. This means that it would not be difficult for the tobacco industry to convince governments to endorse something backed by money. It is a shame humans are too greedy to care about what is actually important…
