Dutch designer Ted Noten has created two pieces of beauty products for modern women in a provocative seven-part series titled Necessities for a Woman (to Feel Like a Woman Through the Eyes of a Man). Chanel001 and Dior001 contain all the stuff a girl wouldn’t leave home without.
Chanel001 conceals Chanel lip gloss, an antique hairpin, a 18k gold toothpick, a perfume bottle with an 18k gold mechanism, a 50-gram 24kt gold bar, a USB stick, and a Viagra pill. The Dior001 gun discreetly hides a lip gloss, pill box, antique hairpin, USB stick and 100 gram sterling silver bar. Other pieces in the collection include sunglasses, a bag, helmet, chastity piece, bionic arm and shawl.
Both items are made from 3-D printed nylon, and both will be on view at Art Basel, which kicks off next week, through the Ornamentum Gallery (Hall 5, Booth G23), from June 15–19. [FastCoDesign]
