Achille Castiglioni’s Revamped Classics

W’s features director has her eye on this ashtray

Yoox has collaborated with the Fondazione Achille Castiglioni to create a capsule collection of some of the Italian designer’s greatest hits including his Sella stool (basically a bicycle seat on a stick) and his minimalist umbrella stand. I have never been a smoker but yet I’ve long been tempted by his stainless steel Spirale Ashtray. Think of it as the perfect accoutrement for design addicts.
