Ashtray : Achille Castiglioni

The ashtray may be going the way of the wood stove—when was the last time you saw someone smoking inside¬¨‚â†?—but an object is still an object, and this one does better than most.

The polished steel body channels a flying saucer, while the coiled wire holds the cigs and reminds us of the barbed wire on fences throughout our fair city.

Of course, those things’ll kill you.
