From its beginning as a napkin sketch in 1964, Arne Jacobsen worked three years utilizing new technology to make the Cylinda Collection with its pure forms and seamless surfaces. An immediate success, the collection was awarded the ID-Prize from the Danish Society of Industrial Design and placed in the permanent collection of many leading museums. The timeless and classic form of the Cylinda Collection places it in the category of lifetime serving and entertaining pieces. The Ashtray features a swiveling bowl insert--simply turn the side wand and the bowl empties ashes into the lower chamber, out of sight. 18/8 stainless steel.
