Lucifer Matches- 04.18.07

lucifer1.jpg
Lucifer, by Feel Addicted. (Yes the same guys that brought you Hotdolls on .org, the designer sex toys for your pups.) This is one of the most gorgeous implementations of matchbooks i’ve seen in some time. Interactions from shaking the match out (reminiscent of some of those toothpick dispensers), the satisfaction of pulling it out and having it light, being able to see all the matches inside yet untouchable…

These are wonderful and unique designs .really l like this Match boxes

----- Jaya kumar 24.09.13 04:08

I think this is a great idea, please contact me, i want buy some ones

----- José 20.10.08 15:05

Oh geez…, what if a child…, what if it was dropped…, what a bunch of OLD WOMEN!

----- Zoë Topper 18.05.08 01:10

Great idea! Could probably be made even smaller or dispensable. As long as you can safety proof it for all these people that eat paint chips and marry their cousins… Its called natural selection people

----- kmoney 05.12.07 09:29

“Uhm, not to point out the obvious, but the “safety concerns” raised here seem to be no worse than a regular box of matches.”

“The people complaining about this product do not deserve fire. They should be forced to live without fire or its benefits.”


my thoughts exactly
…safety?

all the people that replied about safety; i hope your children born/unborn die of a superbug because you wash their hands everyday with antibacterial soap.

they are fucking MATCHES. seriously, i prey for the death of them, and you can only blame yourself.

----- Me too (not) 16.06.07 15:16

please tell me how much is it?

----- paul 08.06.07 18:30

im 14 and this is the coolest design i have ever seen.
about the 4 year olds they will only burn the tips of their fingers and they will learn there life lesson that fire is bad then get over it. secondly, if u thave a 4 year old in your house i think that you would keep this fantasitc design out of reach of the child

----- john 14.05.07 16:38

since when is it necessary to make everything child and idiot proof? if you have a child or idiot in the household, then this obviously wouldnt be a smart decision to leave out in the open. however, for people with an iq in the double digits, its a cool match holder/striker. durrrrrrr.

----- wlriv 24.04.07 10:55

really really cool! I think I missed the part where it says how I can get one

???

----- Dreamlayers 20.04.07 10:15

Don’t get me wrong… I’m an engineer by trade. I think it is very clever, just not very safe.

----- Buddha 20.04.07 09:41

It doesn’t take a firefighter like myself to see the danger of kids getting hold of something like this. It’s likely that it will shortly be banned just as lighters without safety mechanisms were decades ago.

----- Frank 20.04.07 08:46

What about when there’s just a few matches left. It looks like it would be difficult to shake it out. And what’s the striking surface? If it’s anything like a match book this thing would be ruined by wear and tear and/or water.
Aside from those flaws - it would work well as a gimmick - nothing else.

----- JRAMS 20.04.07 08:38

Nice but you need a striker someone on the outside else you risk someone pushing a match that didn’t light back in and then causing a problem. Just a little strick strip somewhere would do - cool idea though

----- Mike 20.04.07 07:47

ohh my god !!! :D

it is wonderful…

Regards…

----- tech 20.04.07 03:23

ABOUT SAFETY: Keep it away from children. Pure and simple.

----- Lapo 20.04.07 01:26

Looks neat but I’m not sure it works correctly when there are only few matches left, they could stuck in.

----- mikkom 20.04.07 00:58

“Wait until a bunch of 4 year olds burn down a few houses with this thing.”

If a bunch of 4 year olds burn a house down with this it will be because (a) they have not been taught not to play with matches by their parents as well as (b) said parents have not been taught not to tempt fate and leave matches within the reach of 4 year olds.

----- pyro 20.04.07 00:30

It’s a really beautiful matchbook! But I find with matchbooks the rough surface that you strike on tends to wear out. What happens when the rough surface in this device wears out. Can it be replaced or do you need to buy a new one?

----- Sarah 19.04.07 22:20

It’s simple, if you don think its safe, dont buy it! I for one think its great, am completely over the old matchbox.

----- justdoit72 19.04.07 21:48

the hole is quite the same as the one on the hotdoll, which just makes this too weird

----- friend 19.04.07 21:40

Who knew buddha was such a whiney pussy

----- eightball 19.04.07 21:25

Such beautiful packaging! I’m a design addict and a smoker, so I’m slobbering over this one. You’ve probably seen this already, but Tobias Wong has also created a really cool matchbook… although not as useful.

----- Brandon Thomas Baunach 19.04.07 20:41

what an awesome piece of design!

----- celsius 19.04.07 19:56

Cool design, possibly with safety flaws.
But we don’t really know that yet do we, cause non of us has tried the damn thing.
Try it out, give it some time, and only then come out with your opinions.
That is all. There should be no further comments on the supposed safety issue.

----- Caveman 19.04.07 19:47

“I too am concerned for with its safety. What if a child gets a hold of this, shakes it a bit and pulls out one of the sticks that comes out. Wait until a bunch of 4 year olds burn down a few houses with this thing. I hear the lawyers drooling already.”


Do lawyers drool about matchboxes or lighters?

----- KariG 19.04.07 18:56

wee keat, do you realize how absurd that sounds? what if america explodes?

----- anon 19.04.07 18:38

“Wait until a bunch of 4 year olds burn down a few houses with this thing. I hear the lawyers drooling already.”

a disclaimer sticker like you see on lighters is all it would take to legally cover their asses

What if a helpless child comes along while you’re drinking gasoline in the dark in a fireworks factory next to the school full of helpess children and behind the shopping mall on christmas where santa is and the child is afraid of the dark and can’t find the light switch and you pull out your box of lucifer matches and light one and NOTHING HAPPENS AT ALL??!

This is not a deadly product for those who don’t live in Barbieland and can understand that fire is hot.

I implore you to live more dangerously and encourage proper match use for all ages.

I’ll take 3 cases. 2 for me, one for the kiddies so they might learn not to burn.

----- helicopterparent282@aol.friggin.com 19.04.07 18:01

I love it.

Brings out the the pyromaniac in me!

----- Duncan 19.04.07 17:35

----- Buddha 19.04.07 16:51

Wee Keat, when you shoved it back in when it was lit, the unlit part of the match would create a blockage in the device, and there wouldn’t be enough air to maintain the flame more more than a second or so. This limited amount of time wouldn’t be enough to light the other matches, whose combustible tips are all the way at the bottom the the container. :)

----- Jason 19.04.07 14:26

The thing wouldn’t even light properly unless you pulled it all the way out due to lack of oxygen in the striker tube. And inside, a flame would consume the uncompressed oxygen remarkably fast and burn out. Having less matches would result in more oxygen to burn, but also less compression after burning due to less fuel source.

That’s just theory though. I suppose it could be dangerous, but then, such is life. Suck it up and live a little.

----- Michael 19.04.07 12:18

Really cool design. I love it! But I’m concern of its safety - what if a person pulls it [igniting it] and then push it back in accidentally [i.e. dropping it on the floor, or someone bumps his/her elbow]?


What if that happens with a zippo… or a regular pack of matches for that matter. Humans already know fire is dangerous, just try not being dumb with flammables.

----- Anon 19.04.07 12:07

””“But I’m concern of its safety”“”

Notice how the match end, once lit, only touches the wooden part of the matches inside the container if it gets pushed back in.

To conflagrate the wooden ends of the matches probably requires more oxygen than is contained within the dispenser.

----- mfhughes 19.04.07 11:22

As for safety, I would argue that existing match book or match box designs are equally if not more dangerous. As you strike a match on a box, it *could* fly out of your hand. You *could* drop it.
I’d love to have one of these, just for the cool factor.

----- justme 19.04.07 11:09

what a waste of resources. interesting idea though. i never considered lighting a match particularly challenging…

----- clark 19.04.07 10:29

I’m gonna hope for oxygen starvation.

----- Alan 19.04.07 09:08

amazing. where can i buy one?

----- jbeez 19.04.07 06:16

Great idea!

what about price…?

----- vdias 19.04.07 05:58
