design studio wolfgang & hite has designed a scaled set of architectural sex toys that reimagine each of the new buildings at the hudson yards developmemt in new york. the full set of custom molded silicon toys includes thomas heatherwick’s vessel and the shed, a cultural building by diller scofidio + renfro (DSR).

‘there’s a lot to love in NYC’s recent building boom, but the city and developers have been jerking each other off for decades, so naturally we wanted to join in the fun…,’ wolfgang & hite explains. ‘masturbation is a great metaphor for the latest wave of development in new york city.’

dubbed XXX-HY, the set includes two ‘magnum’ dildos inspired by KPF’s 10 and 30 hudson yards and a ‘super-slender’ dildo in the style of SOM’s 35 hudson yards. it also features a dildo and clitoral stimulator inspired by 15 hudson yards and the shed, both of which were designed by diller scofidio + renfro, and a ribbed butt plug, which mimics thomas heatherwick’s design for vessel. each toy that makes up the collection is scaled to 1″ = 100′.

‘to challenge what critics have claimed ‘placeless’ and ‘mindless materialism,’ the design team purposefully exaggerated cues in the architecture of hudson yards to make sensitive and stimulating forms for penetrative and external masturbation,’ a description of the project reads on the wolfgang & hite website.

‘the custom base, representing the largest private mixed-use development in the history of the nation, features sensuous urban textures like subway tunnels and the highline. one might imagine the dildo city perched on a bedside table or the desk of a high powered urban planner.’
