Dec 03, 2015, 08:57 ET from PAX Labs, Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing to establish itself as the premier developer of vaporizers, PAX Labs, Inc. today announced a partnership and special edition device with the trend forecasting group K-HOLE. PAX will be debuting this collaboration and the K-HOLE Limited Edition PAX 2 devices at Art Basel in Miami on December 4, 2015.

K-HOLE is a trend forecasting group founded in 2010 by Gregory Fong, Sean Monahan, Emily Segal, Chris Sherron and Dena Yago – a group of New York-based artists, designers, brand strategists and writers famous for addressing how brand and consumer experiences are constructed and exploring the plausible limits of corporate and consumer strategy.

The PAX / K-HOLE collaboration will be limited to 10 hand-customized devices and incorporate the famous K-HOLE touch. Each PAX 2 device is signed with the K-HOLE insignia using a diamond drag engraver and individually numbered for authenticity. The hand-buffered and polished devices are the most intricately designed PAX yet, with an MSRP of $1000.

"If you're going to spend $1000 on something, it might as well be chrome," shared K-HOLE.

K-HOLE's work has been exhibited at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, NY; the Serpentine Galleries in London, UK; the Staatliche Kunsthalle in Baden-Baden, DE; Kraupa Tuskany Zeidler in Berlin, DE; MoMA PS1 in New York, NY; and the Moscow International Biennale for Young Art.

"We are proud to collaborate with such an innovative group of individuals. K-HOLE is a fantastic example of creatives and trendsetters. I'm excited for PAX's innovative brand to be articulated through K-HOLE's creative perspective," shared PAX Labs CMO, Richard Mumby.

In celebration of this collaboration, PAX and K-HOLE are co-hosting an invite-only launch event "K-PAX" at the rooftop at Gale South Beach at 1690 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, on Friday, December 4, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event will feature entertainment by American record producer and songwriter Metro Boomin – best known for his work producing instrumentals for leading artists such as Ludacris, Travi$ Scott, Drake, Nicki Minaj and Wiz Khalifa – as well as special guests, with custom cocktails by Arley Marks, and the special edition PAX 2 / K-HOLE PAX 2 units will be displayed.

The K-HOLE Limited Edition PAX 2, as well as the limited edition Gold PAX 2 and the charcoal and platinum PAX 2 devices, is available for purchase at upscale men's and women's designer fashion boutique Atrium, at 1931 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach. PAX 2 devices are also available at select fine retailers in the US, Canada, Germany and England, as well as at PAXvapor.com.
