Earthn is a modular smoking accessory riding the wave of cannabis-inspired design caused by the growing marijuana industry. 

With recreational marijuana legal in nearly half of US states and medical marijuana a rapidly growing industry, cannabis-related businesses are on the rise. As a result, designers are finding new ways to present, store and enjoy marijuana, with a sleek, contemporary, and functional approach, from luxury marijuana smoking pipes to techy vape pens.

One such designer is Pranay Girkar who has envisioned a modular smoking accessory concept combining a one-hitter, smoke pipe, and a water bong.

The all-one-one accessory employs a layered design with a ceramic body made up of detachable parts. The first layer is the one-hitter, a discreet accessory “for on-the-go smoking or during rush hours”. 

Here is a pick of 5 minimal, hand-made smoking pipes designs for you to check ou: Earth-inspired, minimal and pretty smoking pot pipes worthy of decoration status.

This small and narrow pipe is designed to hold either one or two hits of dry herb but it can also be paired with the second layer—a smoking bowl—for a longer session. Removing the cork piece and inserting the one-hitter into the bowl creates the smoke pipe, an accessory intended for any use between 20 and 30 minutes.

The third layer is the water bong, a large tower-like piece that attaches beneath the smoking bowl. After placing the cork piece back inside, securing it in place, and attaching the one-hitter to the main body, the user can enhance their cannabis experience and enjoy a longer session.

“[The] marijuana industry being organic in nature still has its bi-products which are of totally opposite nature,” explains Girkar. “I tried to tap that industry and make a product that is sustainable as well as organic in nature of use as well as for production.”

The outcome is a contemporary-looking product with an organic feel thanks to its earthenware aesthetic—we think the designer achieved his goal.
