Art-O-Mat Vintage Cigarette Vending Machines now offer art

by Gareth Mankoo

It’s not what we all think about, when it comes to classic smoking styles. There were sophisticated contraptions too and among them were the classic cigarette vending machines. Now, in the 21st century, the cigarettes are viewed as cancer sticks by the growing non-smoking populous. So, the machines are now lying dormant and consuming more space than they should. Quite annoyingly so too. Thankfully we have this brainwave by Clark Whittington who came up with the concept of converting these victims of abolished practices into pieces of art. So now, a pull of a lever can offer users some delightful pieces of art to appreciate.


The idea is quite novel. Establishments with these machines can now deal with the space consuming ancients better. And, art receives more exposure in the bargain. Win, win.
