An object that belongs as much in a museum as it does your living room table, the Connection Ashtray is an elemental expression of sophistication. This numbered edition is a part of the Connection Series, which includes the Connection Bowl and Connection Vessel, as well as a limited-edition version of the Connection Bowl in 3D printed copper.
The series was initially conceived by London-based designer Philippe Malouin as a series of simple, thin, everyday objects focusing on the 3D printed technique as shape creation.
Malouin, a Canada native, has developed a diverse portfolio that ranges from tables to chairs to art objects to installations. He has studied at ENSCI and University of Montreal in addition to his alma mater, Design Academy Eindhoven. With clients including Hem, Ace Hotel, and Established & Sons, Malouin creates conceptual designs that balance finesse, functionality and a fondness for risk.
