Stelton seesaw ashtray designed by Arne Jacobsen

Stelton seesaw ashtray designed by Arne Jacobsen. Arne Jacobsen’s classic swing ashtray is both beautiful and functional. The ashtray consists of a tumbler lid that covers the cigarette butt and removes the odor nuisance. The AJ ashtray is available in two sizes and is a true design icon.

Design seesaw ashtray

Arne Jacobsen designed this tilting ashtray. Not only does it look great, it also has a tilt function to safely store cigarette butts and ashes. This is especially practical outside, as the wind cannot blow the ashes out of the container. The cylindrical design harmonises beautifully with the other items in the Cylinda collection. The matt polished stainless steel surface makes this ashtray a simple, yet stylish design object.

History Stelton

Stellan and Carton were two friends who, by combining their first names, created one of the most famous design brands in Denmark: Stelton. Their trading company originally sold sneakers and furniture, but the shops really got going when they heard about a small factory in Denmark’s Fårevejle called “Dansk Rustfrit”.

Dansk Rustfrit produced popular serving parts in stainless steel. After entering into an agreement with Dansk Rustfrit, Stelton started marketing a sauce bowl in stainless steel. This sauce bowl went like hotcakes at the Danish hardware stores, and the bowls became a big success outside of Denmark as well.

This ashtray is about 2 years old, so we ask you to look carefully at the photos. This will give you a good impression of the condition of the ashtray. We may have more Stelton products available.

The ashtray will be carefully packaged and shipped with Post NL. It is also possible to pick up the ashtray by appointment in Berkel en Rodenrijs.
