Designer Francesco Morackini, who lives and works in Vienna, Austria, builds off the common pencil sharpener with a tool that shapes everyday items and foods into creative sex toys. The concept, called the ‘Dildomaker,’ plays around with the notion that “sex sells”.
It was inspired by French designer Raymond Loewy’s invention from 1933, whose pencil sharpener became an icon of the streamline movement and who was one of the first to introduce sensual lines in everyday products.
The Dildomaker’s purpose is to provide the users what they really want: “Pleasure” and moreover “sexual pleasure.” The Dildomaker is just a tool which doesn’t give pleasure directly. The distance created here on purpose, tries to raise questions on our relationship between us and manufactured products.
The Dildomaker claims to offer an almost limitless choice of creations, offering examples including a sausage, carrot, wooden stick, and a candle. It is said to be very easy to use, as you create your dildo just as you would sharpen your pencil.
