The last designer condom dispenser we wrote about arose mixed emotions in the blogosphere to say the least. I'm sure it will be different with this little item by Alessi.
Alessi is an italian design company who mainly does gadgets and accessories and converts these everyday objects into little pieces of art. You'll find everything from baskets/fruit bowls/centrepieces to kitchen boxes/biscuit boxes/containers in their portfolio.
Now you'll also find the fancy Alessi Cohndom Box.
And no, it's not a typo, the co(h)ndom box is designed by Susan Cohn, an influential Australian silversmith. As a designer of small objects and jewels she directly produces her products in her small laboratory in Melbourne in small series.
The steel box's dimensions are 6.2 cm x 6.2 cm which is enough to fit in exactly one condom (more if you stack them? Update: It's definitely meant for one condom). It might not be much but it does exactly what it should. It protects the condom from friction and heat and makes sure you are always protected in style. Prices are: 38.00 Euros/27.00 Pounds/49.50 Dollars.
Really, if you don't want to be carrying your condoms in a cell phone, then this might just be one good way to go.
