Luxury sex brand Myla has unveiled its range of sex toys designed by Marc Newson, Habitat head of design Tom Dixon and sculptors Mari Ruth Oda and Tara Cottam. Although designed for play, the toys are ‘individual works of art’, according to a Myla statement. ‘I see nothing strange in designing everything from a private jet to a sex toy,’ says Newson, who has created Mojo. The products will be available at Myla’s flagship store, which is scheduled to open in London in October, or from www.myla.com, which was designed by Exact Abacus.
