ZigZag ashtray

Eva Herdin

The sides of the cylindrical ZigZag ashtray are perforated with a repeating pattern of zigzag shapes, reducing its weight without compromising its volume. The dynamic zigzag motif for which it is named is also a means of representing movement on two-dimensional surfaces. The ashtray can be paired with the ZigZag litterbin. Together, the two have a wide range of combination possibilities.
