Turning its focus back on Japanese Domestic Market car culture, for its latest air freshener and rug release Copaze looked to celebrate the rotary engine. The type of engine invented by German engineer, Felix Wankel in the early 1960s became an icon of JDM thanks to Mazda‘s RX line. Undoubtedly tied to the RX-7, Mazda’s rotary engines have an interesting reputation for being relatively small and powerful at the expense of poor fuel efficiency.
Designed to decorate both homes and car interiors, the matching set expresses an illustrative design of the engine that captures the flat metal and hollow points that allow the lightweight and compact piece of machinery to work. The knitting style rug with a movable triangular rotor features a non-woven fabric construction with a non-slip rubber underside and finished with a subtle Copaze tag. While the air freshener comes vacuum sealed and fitted with a black hanging strap that helps it steadily exude the scent of “new baby powder” throughout a car.
Priced at $9 and $85 USD, the Rotary Engine Air Freshener and Rug are available now on Copaze’s website.
