At Design Days Dubai 2015, Lebanese design platform House of Today showcased Sensorial brushes by Najla El Zein Workspace studio: an unconventional set of pleasure tools made with eyelashes and feathers and gold nails.
Lebanese designer Najla El Zein created an exquisite set for pleasure moments with the mission to tickle, tease and scratch the skin, to make eyes blink, and peacefully stroke hair.
Blink features a marble stick with a rounded end with fake eyelashes on the top. The brush is designed to tickle the lover’s look with the delicacy of a butterfly kiss.
Stroke is a hair pacifier. A white marble tool with soft brass pins massage softly the head and the mind. A smooth section is left clear to allow a comfortable grip.
Tickle is composed by a smooth pebble in white-marble with a long grey feather. The brush can be used for pure teasing or elegantly displayed on its brass stand.
Scratch is the bespoke brush when itchy urges soother. A flat disk on a rounded black marble handle hosts concentric gold plated nails.
The Sensorial Brushes set was showcased at the traveling exhibition Naked before the Social Mask by House of Today during Design Days Dubai 2015.
