When we developed our first model of shisha pipe made entirely of glass in 2005 and named it Mirage, we had no idea that it would cause such a revolution in the severely traditional world of hookahs. This was the beginning of a new era of designer hookahs and multi-sensual adventure smoking with top shisha gastronomy involved.
You can be the first and set trends for others, or you can be the others. We have chosen the more complicated path. Our journey has taken us from hand-blown shisha pipes made of Bohemian glass to providing complex adventure hookah smoking.
Have you ever come across the terms shisha cocktail, shisha sommelier, shisha guru or tobacco shisha master? They have all been invented and brought into the world by us at Meduse. We have been driven by our desire to cultivate an emotional smoking experience. And to touch all our users' senses .
That’s why we have brought gastronomic elements into shisha culture and started to develop and provide our customers with advanced-style shisha catering. It is based on the art of our shisha sommeliers who have mastered all recipes and are skilled in the preparation of fruit shisha cocktails, mocktails and long drinks. Our authentic live performances with cocktails, prepared by our sommeliers, and the chance to savour them in a special VIP tent, forms the backbone of the Meduse Events concept.
For years we had filled all our shisha pipes – which currently include 13 basic models, spread over 4 collections – with tobacco of foreign origin. We were not able to guarantee the quality of the served tobacco, so our team of experienced shisha masters developed a unique shisha tobacco in our laboratory. We called it Medite and imprinted in it our idea of how top-quality tobacco should be produced.
Based on our secret recipes, we have succeeded in blending Virginia tobacco, which is appreciated even by real shisha gourmets.
The Unique shisha experience concept is topped with the Meduse lounge philosophy. The unmistakable visual character of the Meduse brand significantly influences the design of the interiors creating an entire symbiotic designer environment. Every design detail is an expression of the whole Meduse philosophy The Meduse essence has thus spread to the furthest corners of shisha bars, lounges, hotel lobbies and luxurious restaurants.
Today, Meduse is not only hand-blown glass designer hookahs. It is a wide platform which has moved shisha culture several light-years forward and made Meduse a 5-star global ambassador of haute shisha culture.
„The first start-up in my life, garage project completely and absolutely: everything staked on one card, real toil, a lot of development and clear vision at the same time. From the very beginning we have been driven by thirst for perfection, beauty, purity – for unique shisha experience! We do our best for you to enjoy shisha smoking as much as we do.”
„During my design studies, I found by coincidence, a market niché in the water pipes segment. I really enjoyed to further develop and shift the centuries old tradition and context in an original and previously unutilized way. 10years ago we founded Meduse, that became pioneer of contemporary shisha culture and cultivate this scene till now. The smoking revolution just began.“
MEDUSE WAS FOUNDED IN 2005 IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC. WITH LAUNCHING THE FIRST COLLECTION CALLED “CRAFT” WE LAID THE FOUNDATION STONE OF THE WORLDWIDE TREND – A NEW CATEGORY OF SHISHA PIPES WAS BORN – DESIGN SHISHA PIPE.
Thanks to the unique design, huge amount of hand work and precise work focusing on the smallest of details Meduse shisha pipes belong to the absolute top class to be found and smoked from in whole shisha world. We ourselves carry out all stages in the processing of our unique shisha pipes - from the graphics and industrial design, through development and prototyping to the manufacture and finally distribution including the complete shisha catering service. Our greatest innovation is in work with a glass corpus. This glass corpus, the heart of a shisha pipe, hand-made of the Bohemian glass is a beautiful example of the perfect connection of art and functionality.
Moreover, its position at the eye level enables you to watch comfortably the processes inside a pipe when smoking. Meduse pipes were the first shisha pipes in the modern history to be served with fruit cocktails inside their glass corpus. We again were part of history – the birth of another growing world trend – adding fresh fruit to a pipe by which you can modify or influence the final taste and the aesthetic experience from your smoking. Furthermore all Meduse shisha pipes can be equipped with different light modules that transform our pipes into magical light objects which makes the smoking an unforgettable experience. Those who have already had the opportunity to try out our shisha pipes served by shisha sommeliers trained by us know now the taste of Meduse shisha experience.
