Concrete cigar ashtray

The "Cuba" cigar ashtray for Loony GmbH is cast in concrete. The monolith is made up of simple geometric shapes. The heavy, rough concrete ashtray acts as a counterpart to the light, usually hand-rolled cigar. The longer the concrete is allowed to harden in a very smooth form, the smoother and shinier the surface becomes. The different aggregates (coarse and fine) and air inclusions break through the smooth surface.

Loony Design originated from the Diakonisches Werk Baden. The objects developed for Loony should be designed (in terms of material, form and production technology) in such a way that they can be produced by people with disabilities.
