YogaThe Grey Area Andrew Kuo and Eric Cahan Yoga Mats

Last year, yoga culture infiltrated the champagne-and-cigarette haze that is Art Basel with design group Grey Area’s debut of seven eco-friendly yoga mats at the event, each created by a different hot contemporary artist. Unlike the cigarette cloud, the unique mats aren’t out of fashion, like this one with a cat in cobra pose and another depicting sky and clouds.

Plank The Pills YogaPlank The Pills Yoga Mat

Plank’s The Pills tongue-in-cheek yoga mat shows a bottle of pills scattered across a bathroom floor, and the company says it’s “for those who thank yoga for allowing them to toss their meds aside or for those who can’t chuck their meds out just yet and yoga is a back-up plan.” Either way, the mat is pretty clever and fun. No joke.
