Materials: Travertine, Stone
A contemporary take on a mid-century classic;
Travertine Ashtray – a monolithic, sculptural piece crafted from solid travertine. It is intended as a whimsical reference to the outsized stone ashtrays that were attention-grabbing mainstays in many homes and offices between the 1960s and 1980s.
The form is streamlined and robustly circular, with a discreet concavity but without the grooves traditionally used for placement of smokes-in-progress. The result is a versatile, highly tactile object that can easily accommodate smoking materials or serve as a receptacle for small everyday objects such as keys, paper clips or loose coins.
