The HIGH Kite
Sometimes an idea is too great not to be made.
A functional kite with a bong carrying case, the HIGH Kite & Journey Tube are handcrafted objects . Handstitched out of ripstop nylon by Miami-based Master kite maker Dan Ward, the 34” HIGH Kite is a statement in the sky. Literally embracing the century old phrase “High as a Kite” while referencing the kite as a means of advertising in the same era, the HIGH kite celebrates the lifted. With a stylistic nod to the legendary acrylic Tobacco Master Water Pipe, the Journey Tube is a 39-inch functional carrying case designed in partnership with Brooklyn-based Industrial Design studio The Principals. This edition by The World’s Best Ever is made with the intention for its users to spend time outdoors, taking in the fresh air and dreaming. The HIGH Kite & Journey Tube were available exclusively in-store through Paul Kasmin Gallery’s PK Shop.
