Gift Ashtray / Smoking cessation product

Gift Ashtray
Gift Ashtray

This ashtray is made of loofah soaked with flame retardant and is a symbolic gift for smokers. It reminds the general public of smoking in a metaphorical way -- smoking is harmful to health. The tar, nitrosamine, benzopyrene, and other substances produced by tobacco burning will bring irreversible damage to the lungs. These damages subtly occur in the human body. We use this design to show a radical form of visualizing and exaggerating the damage that's going on in the lungs. What if your lungs are damaged as this ashtray?
