It was only a matter of time before the Keith Haring Foundation realized it was situated in the Venn diagram of people who like art, people who smoke pot, and people who can afford aesthetically pleasing things to smoke pot with. So, voila, your prayers have been answered with Haring branded marijuana paraphernalia!
Higher Standards, located in Manhattan’s Chelsea market, is a high-end shop catering to the discriminating smoker. It is selling this new collection of smoking devices decorated with multicolored or black and white artworks by the renowned street artist turned blue-chip auction darling.
A personal fave is the Crack Is Wack tray ($60) (which had to happen, admit it). We all need this white glass tray, if only to remind us that natural substances — ahem — are far superior to the synthetic variety.
But the collection doesn’t only include pipes — though if that floats your boat, there is everything from small one-hitters to luxurious water pipes (prices range from $30–$220, depending on the size of the pipe). You can also snag lighters for $5 and attractive catchall trays for $60. I can’t imagine a better way to enjoy the buds of relaxation than with these objects, and if you do it right — or wrong, depending on your tolerance — you may even be able to imagine the little Haring figures dancing off these objects and into your imagination.
As an added bonus, starting this week you can also buy them online at haringglass.com.
