Description

The Cubo Table Ashtray was designed by Bruno Munari in 1957 for Danese Milano and is a real classic. Yet, because of its simplicity and its timeless elegance it is still very up to date.

In the two available sizes (6 cm/8 cm) the ashtray can be used for cigarettes as well as cigars. The ash falls into the inside so the ashtray keeps on looking good although it is being used.

It consists of high-quality melamine-synthetics and is fire-proof and especially durable. The inlay is made of anodised aluminium.

The CUBO ashtray is a classic

The CUBO ashtray is a classic of smoking culture and was already designed in 1957 by the famous Italian designer Bruno Munari. With his classically minimalist form, available in two sizes in black or white, he is represented in the permanent exhibition of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. A stable strip of folded, high-quality anodised aluminium is inserted into the cube, which is open on one side. Due to its special shape, it absorbs ashes and tilts without being visible to the outside. The cube of the ashtray is made of high-quality melamine, is fireproof and particularly durable. Available in two sizes, Cubo is suitable for both cigarettes and cigars, and with its minimalist shape it fits particularly well in modern environments. The company Danese Milano was founded in the late fifties by Bruno Danese and Jacqueline Vodoz together with other artists and designers - first as an artisan manufactory for individual furnishings and works of art. After a first phase with decentralized exhibition activities, Danese Milano opens a central showroom in the Piazza San Pedele of Milan. At that time this place served not only as a shop, but also as an art gallery with exhibitions on the sophisticated design of everyday objects.

Absolutely impractical

... Says the smoker. As a non-smoker, I was very enthusiastic about the aesthetics, but I'm probably impractical high 18. and nothing for the dishwasher. We've ruined the operation to the point of unsightliness.

the most beautiful ashtray I've ever seen! It doesn't fit in too much, so you should just smoke a little less.

Super size - super look - great simple look. The only thing that doesn't work is putting the cigarette down.

Cubism as a black hole

The older, slightly smaller brother of Cubo luce. While the former hides cigarette butts, the latter lights up when the lid is open. What both have in common appears as their cubic unapproachability to the outside, paradoxically with inner openness - a mystery that probably constitutes a large part of the aesthetic appeal of Cubo.

a very pretty little ashtray. I like the white version even better, because it looks even more filigree.
