Bougie gas masks anyone?

Published on 04.09.2008

These bejeweled gas masks were created by artist Diddo Velema for the “Luxury Show 2008” in Bucharest, Romania.

“We are in a state of perpetual war – with ourselves and with the eco-system that sustains us. Perpetual war breeds perpetual fear. In the present context, this fear stems from our extreme desire for authenticity and manifests itself in our collectively insatiable culture of consumption.” – Velema

I fear for the day when these become real products you can buy.
