Default Design hookahs

Hi

about a year ago I found the collection of Meduse Pipes (most of you probably know 'em by now I guess.)
They're pretty expensive as you also know

But, I have once seen (and if I remember well, it was on this forum) a pretty resembling hookah

It was on a sort of boldy triangular vase, with blue (water? light?), and was more affordable. (more like $200-300?)

I'm going nuts not finding it, any suggestions?

Thanks


edit: why? because I'm getting sick of all those middle-eastern looking things. It totally doesn't fit my minimal interiour. As a designer I'm making this a problem

We are going to need a bit more information than that. Can you remember more about the particular pipe?

Yeah thanks, but it's not Meduse pipes!

More information is hard, it looks like one of the small meduse pipes:


But probably a little lower, and not a glass top!

all i can say, is that it's similar to meduse pipes, in the meaning of not finding it on online hookah-shops (because it's more fancy)

I took a quick look at meduse pipes, but was wary right away because the whole bowl/coal setup was a little weird...not saying it doesn't work, but you won't be using your vortex or phunnel.

If it is made of quality materials and comes completely apart (easily) for cleaning, I'd say they are still worth a look. Very attractive looking though, if you're into a more modern design.

Yeah but they cost about $4000

So I found this lookalike of it (not just a copy), and that is what I can't find anymore. Need help

1. the medusa pipes cost about 1500$(not 4000)
2. must the pipe you are looking for be made of glass, or can it also be made from metal or sth. else? like this one: http://www.fumari.com/showcase-hookahs/the-narghile

I think I smoked a meduse pipe once, I was very drunk and knew nothing about hookah at the time though lol....but I remember it being the strangest hookah I've ever seen and it was a friends house who is well...well to do. If I remember correctly though (BIG IF) then it smoked great!

I have smoked out of a couple of these at a hookah bar near my previous college. They have an uncannily easy pull (feels like you're breathing) and the bowls are similar to a phunnel bowl that has been stretched downward. The smoke was good, but I actually prefer a KM. I would not want to live in fear of breaking such an expensive piece. Also think of all the great shisha you could purchase with the money you saved.
