About the design:
The movement of the Whirling Dervishes, a ceremonial dance by the Turkish culture, inspired the form of Hooka. The flow of their garments, conical fez hats and widespread arms are an iconic sign of this unique culture. With Hooka, I wanted to nod to this amazing dance as well as make a beautiful Hookah.
